Michael Steenson, Margaret H. and James E. Kelley Professor of Tort Law

Professor Steenon’s primary focus has been on Minnesota tort law.  His work with the Minnesota District Judges Association Civil Jury Instruction Guides Committee has allowed him to gain important insights into the way tort law is implemented in Minnesota, as well as in other jurisdictions.  The committee of excellent judges Peter Knapp and I have had the privilege to work with over the course of many years on the Minnesota Civil Jury Instruction Guides and accompanying Handbook has had a significant impact on how I perceive and teach the law of torts to students.  He also teaches constitutional law as well as seminars on American legal history and religion and the constitution.  Professor Steenson’s interest in constitutional law was rekindled after his experience in China during the Tiananmen Square protests in 1989.

Mehmet Konar-Steenberg, Briggs & Morgan/Xcel Energy Chair in Energy and Environmental Law
Professor Konar-Steenberg teaches administrative law, U.S. and comparative constitutional law, environmental law, and property law. He coordinates the school’s Regulatory Pathway and Environmental, Energy, and Natural Resources Pathway, and coaches the school’s environmental law moot court team.
Professor Konar-Steenberg has published several articles on the application of the dormant Commerce Clause doctrine, including an empirical analysis of the impact of judges’ party affiliations on dormant Commerce Clause decisions. Professor Konar-Steenberg is co-editor of the third edition of George Beck’s Minnesota Administrative Procedure, an online collaboration with members of the Minnesota Bar Association Administrative Law Section and other administrative law practitioners. Access to the treatise is available free-of-charge.
Professor Konar-Steenberg oversees the annual Energy and Environment Conference at Mitchell Hamline. He also gives an annual presentation to the Minnesota Attorney General’s Office on United States Supreme Court developments with his colleague, Professor Michael Steenson.
As associate dean, Professor Konar-Steenberg oversaw the establishment of the nation’s first hybrid on-campus/online J.D. program, served on the successful 2015 national dean search committee, and participated in the successful combination of William Mitchell College of Law and Hamline University School of Law.
Professor Konar-Steenberg serves on the board of directors and legal affairs committee for the Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy and editorial board for the Legal Writing Institute’s Monograph Series. He has represented asylum seekers through the Advocates for Human Rights. He is a trustee for Lake Country Montessori School, and was the founding chair of the board of directors of Great River Montessori School.
