Combining three and one-half years of experience in federal and state government with 30 years of teaching experience, Brian A. Freeman taught Constitutional Law and Trusts. He prepared his own teaching materials in those areas and published several law review articles, maintaining high expectations for his students.
Professor Freeman was a former judge advocate in the U.S. Air Force and a former assistant attorney general for the State of Ohio. He was a consultant to the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Municipal League, and a former member and past president of the Bexley, Ohio, Board of Education.
Professor Freeman also served as secretary and member of the Board of Directors of the Columbus Clippers Baseball Team. He served as associate dean for many years and as interim dean of the Law School for three years.
He was dedicated to his students, reportedly working as hard to help them find employment as he did teaching them in the classroom.
Professor Freeman’s scholarship and teaching were recognized when he was honored as Teacher of the Year by the Association of American Law Schools shortly before his death in 2002.
After his death, his friends, family, colleagues and former students created the Brian A. Freeman Memorial Scholarship for Excellence in Constitutional Law.
