About the Author

Kubasek, Nancy K.: - Nancy K. Kubasek received her JD from the University of Toledo College of Law in 1981 and her BA from Bowling Green State University in 1978. She joined the BGSU faculty in 1982 and became an associate professor in 1988 and a full professor in 1993.

During her tenure at Bowling Green State University, she has primarily taught courses in business law, legal environment of business, environmental law, health care law, and moral principles. She has published over 75 articles, primarily in law reviews and business journals. Most of her substantive articles focus on environmental questions, and she writes a quarterly column about environmental issues for the Real Estate Law Journal. She has helped get students involved in legal research, and a number of her articles are co-authored with students. She has also published a number of pedagogical articles in teaching journals, focusing primarily on teaching critical thinking and ethics.

She wrote the first environmental law text for undergraduate students, Environmental Law, and co-authored The Legal Environment of Business: A Critical Thinking Approach. She has written supplemental materials, such as study guides, test banks, and instructors' manuals.

Active in many professional organizations, she has served as president of the Academy of Legal Studies in Business, the national organization for professors of legal studies in colleges of business. She has also served as president of the Tri-State Academy of Legal Studies in Business, her regional professional association.

In her leisure time, she and her husband Neil Browne fish for halibut and salmon in Alaska and large-mouth bass in Florida. In addition, they are regular participants in polka, waltz, zydeco, and Cajun dance festivals in Europe and the United States. For almost 30 years, they have been successful tournament blackjack players as well. Both are avid exercisers--lifting weights, doing yoga, and running almost every day.

He has received recognition as the Silver Medalist National Professor of the Year, the Ohio Professor of the Year, and Distinguished Teacher and Master Teacher at Bowling Green State University, as well as numerous research awards from his university and from professional organizations. His consulting activities with corporate, government, and educational institutions focus on improving the quality of critical thinking in those organizations.
