The National Jurist has named William Henderson, an Indiana University Maurer School of Law professor, the most influential person in legal education. Henderson has been near, if not at, the top of the magazine’s list for four years in a row.

Over the years, Henderson has put a heavy emphasis on the ethics of law in the classroom. In fact, he, along with other faculty members at the Maurer School of Law, created a first-year course in 2009 called The Legal Profession that teaches students about the ethics and economics of law. Henderson also helped find professors to teach students about the ethics, depositions, and compliance of law in Wintersession this month.

The National Jurist picked Henderson as the most influential person because Henderson "has been long admired for his research and well-reasoned opinions on legal education."

Austen L. Parrish, the Maurer School of Law dean and the James H. Rudy professor of law, agrees with National Jurist‘s pick for most influential person. "Bill Henderson is one of, if not the most, influential voices in the country when it comes to explaining and understanding changes occurring in large law firms and the legal profession. We are fortunate to have Bill here in Bloomington, where his insight and expertise have been invaluable," said Parrish.

The National Jurist‘s 2016 list of the most influential people in law education will be released in February. It will be seen by more than 100,000 law students and educators.
