Chairman of the School of Law
Chairman of the School of Law for the last fifteen years, Dr. Porter is the undisputed master of his domain. Cold, aloof, and formidable to his students, his attention to details and rigorous grading practices are legendary. Porter is a firm believer that lawyers should excel in every mode of expression, and has ensured that all law students must take several composition courses that are run in conjunction with the English department. Law, according to Porter, is the highest achievement of human civilization, and the means by which all of civilization’s other bounties and achievements are made possible. Lawyers, by extension, are called to the highest of professions. By the time most law students have earned their degrees, they readily share Porter’s arrogance.
