A ceremony to honor Bintliff will be held at the Fleming Law Building on Aug. 20 at 4 p.m. Bintliff has been director of the law library since 1989. A nationally prominent law librarian, she recently completed a term as president of the American Association of Law Libraries. She is a frequent presenter at national and regional conferences and teaches a course in advanced legal research. “I am very honored to be named a Nicholas Rosenbaum Professor of Law,” said Bintliff. “The faculty at the CU School of Law is exceptionally accomplished and unanimously dedicated to legal education. To be singled out for this honor, to be chosen from among the many deserving members of the law faculty, is humbling.” In commemoration of her named professorship a first edition of Timothy Walker’s “Introduction to American Law” will be added to the University of Colorado at Boulder’s rare book collection in her honor. Published in 1837, the book is one of the earliest guides to U.S. legal research. She joined the CU law faculty in 1984 and has been director of the law library since 1989. The Nicholas Rosenbaum professorships were endowed by a gift from the estate of Nicholas Rosenbaum, a Hungarian immigrant who was a businessman and banker in New York City from 1957 until his death in 1979. The endowment is used to augment faculty salaries to attract and retain outstanding legal scholars. Bintliff is the fifth professor at CU to hold the title since its inception in 1991.last_img
