Lee Fisher (Dean, Cleveland-Marshall), Changing of the Guard:

GeierProfessor Geier clerked for the Honorable Monroe G. McKay of the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. She worked in the tax group of the Wall Street firm of Sullivan & Cromwell in New York before joining the CSU C|M|LAW faculty to teach Tax law. In an effort to reduce student textbook costs, she is the sole author of U.S. Federal Income Taxation of Individuals, an e-textbook that students can download for free. Professor Geier has been a Visiting Professor of Law at Washington University, the University of Michigan, the University of Florida in Gainesville and the University of Alabama. She is a member of the American Law Institute and has served both as a member of the Executive Committee and as Chair of the Tax Section of the Association of American Law Schools.

In retirement, Professor Geier plans to continue updating her e-textbook in addition to teaching. She intends to do more traveling and develop her photography skills.

What have you enjoyed most about your time at C|M|LAW?
"What I have enjoyed the most in my 33 years at Cleveland State University's College of Law is its students. I have had the privilege of being a visiting professor at four other law schools, and I was always happy to come home. As I say in the Preface to my textbook, which is dedicated to my CSU students, 'you rock!'."
