Professor of Law

Professor Cichowski came to Valparaiso Law as a member of the administration, and served in such capacity for 29 years.  Consequently, his professional service history is one far more of legal education administration than pure scholarship. He has served on multiple American Bar Association site inspection teams, and currently serves on the Law School Administration Committee of the ABA’s Section of Legal Education.  Professor Cichowski started teaching in in 1984, when he offered a seminar in Copyright and High-Tech. He has taught every year since then, adding courses such as international intellectual property. In 2011, he became a full-time faculty member. That same year he was awarded the Distinguished Faculty Award. His current teaching load includes the first-year torts course; an intellectual property overview course; trademark, unfair competition and business torts; and the non-judicial externship program.
