Haub Law celebrated its first official Artist-in-Residence, Geoffrey Stein, with a special program highlighting his work and process. The event kicked off with an art show allowing guests to browse several of his unique and intricate portraits up close, including iconic subjects such as Barack Obama, Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson and Liz Cheney. The artist also unveiled a new portrait of Haub Law Professor Nicholas A. Robinson, which was generously donated to the law school. Dean Anderson, who teaches intellectual property law at Haub Law, then led a candid conversation into Geoffrey’s process and the complexities of protecting intellectual property for creative works.

Geoffrey Stein joined the Law School in February 2022 as the law school’s first official Artist-in-Residence. The year-long program was designed to provide enrichment and educational opportunities for law students and the broader law school community. A former lawyer by training, he has been painting full-time since 2000. He received his law degree from Albany Law School in 1986, then clerked for an appellate court and practiced reinsurance litigation work for Lloyd's of London and London Market Reinsurers at Sheft & Sheft, Ober|Kaler, and later with Mendes & Mount. He received a Certificate in painting from the New York Studio School in 2004 and an MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art, London in 2007. He is represented by The Minster Gallery in the UK and lives and paints in New York City and Westport CT.
