A struggling Spanish guitar and didgeridoo playing former naval officer, Tim Lynch joined the faculty as an associate professor in summer 2011.

Prior to joining the faculty, Professor Lynch taught as a visiting assistant professor at the Indiana University Maurer School of Law. His scholarship is principally in the areas of international capital markets and international trade. He teaches the courses International Trade Law and Finance, International Business Transactions, Conflicts of Law, and International Environmental Law.

Tim received his JD from Harvard Law School, his MBA from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business and his BA from the University of Chicago, where he majored in Arabic and Islamic studies and spent much of his time training and captaining the university’s rowing team.

Prior to entering academia, Professor Lynch was an associate attorney at Coudert Brothers in New York largely representing institutions in international investment transactions and development projects. After living in Japan for several years, and then living out of a pickup truck while traveling around North America for a year, he became the executive manager for the Public Works Department of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, where he managed the construction of several grand-scale public works projects.

When he is not struggling with the guitar or the didge, Professor Lynch devotes far too much time and money learning how to turn wood and playing with his three young boys.
