James Hogg, a longtime and respected William Mitchell College of Law professor and former president and dean, passed away Tuesday, Jan. 8, after suffering a stroke. He was 83 years old.

“Jim served Mitchell for 28 years. He was president and dean during a critical period of progress for the college, capped by fundraising for the construction of the Warren E. Burger Library,” said William Mitchell President and Dean Eric Janus. “He was a prolific scholar, authoring dozens of law review articles and many books. Until the end, he remained totally engaged in his teaching and was one of the most tech-savvy members of our faculty. He was a friend and mentor for me and many others.”
