Dean Rooney's Scholarship

A new article in the Marquette Law Review recognizes Dean Rooney's vast accomplishments as both a leader and scholar

Dean Miriam T. Rooney is featured prominently in a new article, The Forgotten Jurisprudential Debate: Catholic Legal Thought’s Response to Legal Realism. Written by Professor John M. Breen and Lee J. Strang and published in the Marquette Law Review, the article recognizes her as an important force in the Neo-Scholastic revival in response to the Legal Realism school of jurisprudence. It also acknowledges her role as founding dean at Seton Hall – “the first woman dean of an ABA-approved law school” – and her remarkable productivity as a scholar.
