| Emeritus Law Professor Alfred I. Maleson, a member of the Suffolk Law community for almost half a century, died September 24, 2009, at the age of 87.
“Alfred Maleson was a highly regarded member of the law school faculty,” said Acting Dean Bernie Keenan. “Even after his retirement, he visited Sargent Hall almost every day and remained an active member of the law school community. He will be missed by all.”
Maleson joined the Suffolk Law faculty in 1959. Previously he served as an assistant professor at the University of Toledo College of Law and a professor of law at Albany Law School.
Maleson taught many law school courses, including Civil Procedure, Contracts, Corporations, Negotiable Instruments, and Taxation. He and Emeritus Professor Brian Callahan also co-authored a casebook titled Cases and Materials on Contemporary Commercial Law. Among other leadership positions, Maleson served as the faculty chair of the law school’s tenure committee for many years. Upon his retirement in 1988, the Suffolk University Trustees awarded Professor Maleson the title of Emeritus Professor.
In 1990, Maleson received the Suffolk University Heritage Medallion, given to those who have made outstanding contributions to the Suffolk University community.
