The law school gathered in June to celebrate the retirement of Dave Markell, our Steven M. Goldstein Professor, who joined the FSU Law faculty in 2002 and greatly enriched the law school and lives of thousands of students during his tenure. In addition to being a member of FSU Law’s highly regarded environmental law faculty, Professor Markell served as associate dean for research from 2016-2018, associate dean for environmental programs from 2012-2015, and associate dean for academic affairs from 2007-2008. He taught and researched in the areas of administrative law, environmental law and policy, and legislation and regulation, and his scholarship has been nationally recognized as some of the best in his field. Professor Markell played a critical role in raising and maintaining the national reputation of the environmental program and keeping the faculty connected to the practicing bar. In addition, students and colleagues were the beneficiary of Markell's unwavering kindness during his time at FSU Law, which added immensely to the collegiality of the FSU Law community. His contributions to FSU Law were countless and he will be deeply missed!
