    Kyle Logue

    Kyle Logue is the Douglas A. Kahn Collegiate Professor of Law at the University of Michigan Law School. He teaches and writes primarily in the areas of torts, tax, and insurance law, fields in which he has particular substantive expertise. But his scholarly interests are wide ranging. Deploying insights from disciplines outside of law, including economics, psychology, and philosophy, he has written on a variety of topics related to law, policy, and legal theory.

    Among the questions Logue is currently exploring are: the role of private and public insurance in responding to cyber threats, how to use tort law (or some alternative compensation regime) to encourage auto-safety innovation, and the function that private and public law might play in efficiently and fairly allocating the costs of climate change adaptation.

    Professor Logue has published numerous articles in leading law reviews, including the Yale Law Journal, Michigan Law Review, Stanford Law Review, the Chicago Law Review, and the Tax Law Review. One of his areas of special expertise is insurance law and regulation. He has written or co-written a number of widely-cited articles in the field and is the co-author of one of the leading insurance law casebooks, Insurance Law and Policy: Cases and Materials (5th ed. 2021) (with T. Baker & C. Saiman). He was also the Associate Reporter for the American Law Institute’s Restatement of Law of Liability Insurance, which was completed in 2018.

    Logue has served, and continues to serve, in a number of administrative roles at the Law School. He was the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs from 2006 to 2008, for example, and he will be the Associate Dean for Faculty and Research beginning in January 2022. From 2006 to 2016, he was the Wade H. and Dores M. McCree Collegiate Professor of Law. Since 2016, he has held the Douglas A. Kahn Collegiate Professorship. Logue is a graduate of Auburn University, where he was a Harry S. Truman Scholar, and Yale Law School, where he was an articles editor on the Yale Law Journal. Before joining the University of Michigan faculty, he practiced law in the Atlanta office of the law firm Sutherland, Asbill & Brennan. Prior to that, he served a one-year judicial clerkship with the Honorable Patrick E. Higginbotham on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.

    Professor Saiman received his B.S. from Georgia State University, and his J.D. from Columbia University School of Law. He also studied for a number of years at Yeshivat Har-Etzion (Gush) and Yeshivat Kerem B’Yavneh in Israel. Prior to joining the faculty at Villanova, he was an Olin Fellow at Harvard Law School a Golieb Fellow at NYU Law School, a law clerk to Judge Michael McConnell on the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, and worked as a corporate associate with the firm Cleary Gottlieb in New York.

    Tom Baker

    Tom Baker is the William Maul Measey Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania CareyLaw School. He is a highly regarded insurance expert, a leading scholar of insurance law and policy, and a devoted law teacher. His research explores insurance law, institutions, and markets using methods from history, economics, psychology and sociology. His many books, articles, and reports address topics such as the impact of insurance on personal injury and securities litigation, health insurance reform, insurance underwriting and claims management, the historical development of insurance institutions, insurance company restructuring, and many aspects of insurance coverage. Recent articles include "Regulating Robo Advice Across the Financial Services Industry," which outlines a regulatory trajectory to address the automation of financial services advice, and "Uncertainty Risk: Lessons for Legal Thought From the Insurance Runoff Market," which argues for understanding insurance markets as centrally about managing uncertainty, not predictable risks. Current research topics include cyber liability and insurance, long term care insurance, secondary insurance markets, and the empirical study of insurance litigation.

    Baker is the Reporter for the American Law Institute’s Restatement of the Law Liability Insurance and a co-founder of Picwell, a health data analytics company that provides advanced decision support tools to health insurance exchanges, insurers, and employers. Before joining the Penn Law faculty in 2008, Baker served for eleven years as the inaugural Connecticut Mutual Professor and Director of the Insurance Law Center at the University of Connecticut. After graduating from Harvard Law School, Baker clerked for Judge Juan R. Torruella of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, practiced with the law firm of Covington & Burling, served as Associate Counsel to the Independent Counsel Iran/Contra, and entered law teaching as an associate professor at the University of Miami Law School.
