LLM, The John Marshall Law School


Glenn Schwartz has always appreciated the liberal arts education he received at Shimer College. Among other things, it allows him to assure his students that such a background is not a barrier to succeeding in business-related law courses.

After graduating from law school, Professor Schwartz worked for the Chicago law firm of Katz and Friedman, attending John Marshall at night to obtain an LLM in Admiralty Law (with a minor in taxation). Thereafter, he spent three years in the Office of the Judge Advocate General of the Navy handling maritime law claims for and against the Navy. He then practiced with Lord, Bissell and Brook before entering the teaching profession.

Professor Schwartz has argued pro bono before the U.S. Supreme Court and engaged in pro bono activities for the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders (ANAD), as well as serving on the Legislative Submissions Subcommittee of the American Bar Association Committee on Taxation. His article, "How Many Trades Must a Trader Make to Be in the Trading Business?," was the lead article in the Winter 2003 volume of the University of Virginia Tax Review.

Professor Schwartz joined the faculty in 1974. He teaches Business Planning, Corporate Tax, Corporations, Federal Income Tax, and Torts.
