Miriam T. Rooney Professor of Law and Associate Dean for Graduate and Professional Education

Professor Timothy Glynn is the Miriam T. Rooney Professor of Law at Seton Hall Law School. He specializes in corporate and employment law, and the intersection between these two areas. Since joining Seton Hall in 1999, he has taught various corporate-and employment-law courses, as well as first-year Civil Procedure and Torts.

Professor Glynn's recent scholarship focuses on enforcement mechanisms in employment and corporate law, the allocation of decision making authority and legal accountability within the corporation, and the impact of enterprise structures on legal protections and legal compliance. He has also written on the troubling implications of school ranking systems. He is the author of a leading employment-law casebook, Employment Law: Private Ordering and Its Limitations (2nd ed. 2011) (with Rachel Arnow-Richman and Charles Sullivan); has published numerous articles addressing issues in corporate and employment law; and frequently presents on these topics to professional and academic organizations.

Along with Professor Charles Sullivan, Professor Glynn founded the Seton Hall Employment & Labor Law Junior Scholars Forum in 2006 and continues to host this event each year.  In addition, in 2013, he was appointed the Faculty Director of Seton Hall’s U.S. Health Care Compliance Certification Program.

Professor Glynn received his B.A., magna cum laude, from Harvard University, and his J.D., magna cum laude, from the University of Minnesota Law School, where he served as Editor-in-Chief of the Minnesota Law Review. He clerked for the Honorable Donald P. Lay, United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. He then practiced law as an associate at the firm of Leonard, Street and Deinard in Minneapolis, Minnesota, focusing in the areas of securities, business, and employment litigation. Prior to joining Seton Hall, he again served as a judicial clerk, this time for the Honorable John R. Tunheim, United States District Court for the District of Minnesota.
