Del Wright Leaves Valparaiso For UMKC

WrightDel Wright (Valparaiso) has accepted a lateral offer to join the University of Missouri Kansas City Law School faculty. Del's recent publications include:

From Del:

While at Valpo, David Herzig and I increased the number of students pursuing Tax LLMs at the top programs to over 257% of the national average (almost all of the students attended either NYU, Georgetown, Northwestern or Boston University). No less than one third of those students were women, and in the last three classes, over 40% were underrepresented minorities. At UMKC, I will be focusing on entrepreneurship, finance and, of course, tax. Prior to joining the faculty at Valparaiso, I served as a Trial Attorney with the Department of Justice Tax Division, an associate at Skadden Arps, and as an investment banker structuring derivatives at Bank of America.
