Meet Our Faculty

Our faculty are famous for having equally strong commitments to teaching and to undertaking scholarship that matters. In fact, the Iowa Law faculty is nationally recognized for its scholarly productivity and well-known for its interdisciplinary interests.

Highlights:

Nicholas Johnson is among roughly 700 individuals listed in The Yale Biographical Dictionary of American Law (2009), described by the publisher as “leading figures in the history of American law, from the colonial era to the present day.” He has been listed in Marquis Who’s Who in America since 1968. In 1970, Newsweek magazine described him as one of the four candidates most in demand for university presidencies. He taught at the College of Law from 1981 until his retirement in 2014.

Since his FCC term, Professor Johnson ran in an Iowa congressional primary, headed a Washington-based media reform group, hosted a PBS TV series, wrote a nationally syndicated column, consulted with numerous countries on media matters, and delivered hundreds of lectures at various venues including dozens of colleges.

Upon his return to Iowa City, in addition to teaching at the College of Law, Professor Johnson also taught in University’s Department of Communication Studies in the early 1980s, was Co-director of the UI's Institute for Health, Behavior and Environmental Policy, and a board member of the Iowa City Community School District School Board.
