Professor Timothy Glynn

Andrea J. Catania Endowed Professor of Law

Professor Glynn specializes in employment and corporate 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. He also has created and taught online courses addressing legal issues and compliance in the workplace, the laws governing whistleblowing, and internal investigations. In 2016, he was named the Andrea J. Catania Endowed Professor of Law.

Professor Glynn was appointed Associate Dean in 2015 and then served as a Senior Associate Dean. In this role, he oversaw various aspects of the law school’s JD program, including Seton Hall’s Master of Science in Jurisprudence (MSJ) and online graduate certificate programs in financial services compliance, and healthcare, pharmaceutical, and intellectual property law. In addition, he supervised the law school’s six live healthcare compliance certificate programs in the United States, Europe, Latin America and Asia.

Professor Glynn's 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. In addition, he has written on the troubling implications of school ranking systems. He is a co-author of leading employment and labor law casebooks, Employment Law: Private Ordering and Its Limitations (3rd ed. 2015) (with Charles Sullivan and Rachel S. Arnow-Richman); and Cox and Box’s Labor Law: Cases and Materials (16th ed. 2016) (with Robert A. Gorman and Matthew W. Finkin). He has published numerous articles addressing issues in employment and corporate law, and frequently presents on these and other legal topics to professional and academic organizations. Moreover, along with Professor Charles Sullivan, Professor Glynn founded the Seton Hall Employment & Labor Law Junior Scholars Forum in 2006, and continues to host it annually.

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.
