Roger A. Cunningham taught at the University of Michigan Law School, 1959-1994.
BiographyProfessor Roger A. Cunningham received a Bachelor of Science (magna cum laude) in 1942 from Harvard College, and in 1948 received a Bachelor of Laws degree (cum laude) from the Harvard Law School.
After being admitted to practice in Massachusetts in 1948, he became associated with the firm of Nutter, McClennen & Fish, Boston, during 1948-49. The following year he was appointed as a teaching fellow at the Harvard Law School and, as such, helped initiate the "group work program" for the first-year students at the School. Mr. Cunningham was a member of the George Washington University Law Faculty from 1950 to 1954, and, in 1954, joined the faculty of Rutgers University Law School, where he remained until coming to Ann Arbor. While at Rutgers, Mr. Cunningham, with the aid of a Ford Foundation grant, helped establish a new program of research and instruction in urban problems.
At Michigan, Mr. Cunningham is teaching courses in Property and Securities, and is scheduled to conduct a seminar on Land Utilization during the spring semester. As a result of his article on "Control of Land Use in New Jersey by Means of Zoning,'' which appeared in 14 Rutgers L. Rev. 37 (1959), Mr. Cunningham has been requested by the Secretay of the New Jersey Law Revision Commission to participate in the revision of the New Jersey Planning and Zoning Acts.
