In 2009, Professor Sam Kalen was appointed to the University of Wyoming College of Law faculty as an assistant professor of law. Professor Kalen comes to UW from the Washington, D.C., law firm of Van Ness Feldman and various teaching positions at the University of Baltimore, Florida State University, Washington & Lee University, and Penn State University. Van Ness Feldman is one of the nation's leading energy, environmental and natural resources law firms. Before joining Van Ness Feldman, Professor Kalen began his career as a law clerk for Justice Warren D. Welliver of the Missouri Supreme Court.
With his experience in our nation's capital, Professor Kalen hopes to bring not just a D.C. lawyer's perspective, but the experiences of someone who has practiced law in a variety of areas for many years. In addition to working in private practice, he also has served in the Office of the Solicitor of the U.S. Department of Interior.
