Hollander-Blumoff, Rosenzweig named Treiman Fellows in law

Rebecca Hollander-Blumoff, J.D., and Adam Rosenzweig, J.D., both associate professors of law, have been named School of Law Treiman Fellows for 2008-09.

The fellowship, which supports faculty scholarship, is named in memory of Israel Treiman, an alumnus, faculty member and longtime supporter of the law school.

Hollander-Blumoff focuses her research and teaching on the intersection of law and psychology in the context of dispute resolution.

She is working on two articles, “The Objective Antecedents of Procedural Justice in Bilateral Negotiation” and “Just Negotiation.”

In the first article, Hollander-Blumoff presents the results of two empirical studies on how people form subjective judgments of fairness in negotiation. The second relies upon her empirical research to argue that fairness of process in negotiation is critically important in legal negotiation.

Hollander-Blumoff also is the organizer of an ongoing series of workshops for junior faculty at Midwestern law schools to present their works-in-progress.

Rosenzweig specializes in tax law and policy.

He is working on a paper on the taxation of carried interest in private investment funds, titled “Not All Carried Interests are Created Equal,” which will be published in a symposium issue of the Northwestern Journal of International Law and Business. He also is writing an article analyzing why tax havens have arisen and persist in the face of significant and continued criticism.

The seventh edition of his co-authored book, “Problems and Materials in Federal Income Taxation” (with Sanford M. Guerin, J.D., and Philip F. Postlewaite, J.D.), was published by Aspen Publishing in the summer of 2008.
