Reynolds also received the honor from the classes of 1989, 1991, 1997 and 2003.

“Professor Reynolds was one of the best professors I ever had,” class Speaker Adam Watson said. He is intellectually challenging without resorting to intimidation, he uses his wide knowledge of the classics, history and literature to inform his teaching, and he includes the perfect amount of wit and cynicism in his lectures. Further, he is very accessible and truly cares about the well-being and future success of his students.”

Reynolds joined the College of Law faculty in 1982 and primarily teaches in the areas of professional ethics and conduct, contracts and legal history. He is co-director of the College’s Summer Study Abroad Program at the University Montesquieu-Bordeaux IV in Agen, France, and last fall he co-coordinated the college’s first-ever program for foreign law students. During his tenure at the college, he also has served as interim dean and associate dean.

Reynolds received his bachelor of arts degree from University of Nebraska and his law degree from Creighton University.
