Creighton University School of Law Hires Two New Faculty

Two professors, Carol Knoepfler, J.D., and David Weber J.D., have joined the Creighton University School of Law.

Weber, a 2005 graduate of the University of Minnesota Law School, joined the School of Law faculty in July. Before joining Creighton, he was an associate with Fredrickson & Byron law firm in Minneapolis, Minn. While in private practice he served for more than two years on the board of directors of Centro Legal, Inc., a nonprofit provider of legal services to the Hispanic community.

Weber speaks fluent Spanish and has lived in Guatemala, Costa Rica and Nicaragua. He will teach immigration law, mergers and acquisitions, and negotiable instruments.

Knoepfler joined the Creighton law faculty in August as the new assistant director of legal writing. She earned her law degree with high honors from the University of Iowa College of Law in 1987. Prior to Creighton, Knoepfler had served as a career law clerk for the Hon. Lindsey Miller-Lerman, Nebraska Supreme Court justice, and was a partner with the Omaha law firm of Baird Holm, LLP.

Knoepfler has taught various courses as an adjunct professor at the Creighton Law School since 2000. She will continue teaching legal writing and lawyering skills I and II and employment discrimination.

Creighton University is a Jesuit, Catholic university bridging health, law, business and the arts and sciences for a more just world.
