Elizabeth Galloway

Visiting Assistant Professor of Business and Sport Law

Elizabeth (Libba) Galloway has enjoyed a comprehensive career as a lawyer, business executive and university instructor. She has served as a partner in the Business and Finance Department of Taft, Stettinius & Hollister, a national law firm based in Cincinnati; deputy commissioner and chief legal officer of the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA); and executive director of the Professional Association of Athlete Development Specialists (PAADS). She has taught sport law, ethics and governance in undergraduate, graduate and law school programs, where she enhances the learning experience by infusing her industry experience and perspective into the classroom. 

Through a combination of readings, presentations and interactive exercises, Galloway follows a three-prong approach in teaching business and sport law: 1. Laying the foundation: Students learn the fundamentals of a particular area of law, and how they relate to business. 2. Engaging critical analysis: Students sharpen their critical thinking skills by analyzing the application of legal principles to a particular issue. 3. Applying the learnings: Students understand how their learnings from the classroom relate to situations they may face in the workplace.
