We warmly welcome Assistant Professor of Law Karl Lockhart, who officially joins the DePaul Law community in July 2023. Specializing in business law, Professor Lockhart will teach Business Organizations, Securities Regulation, Unincorporated Business Entities and other advanced business law courses. 

Prior to joining DePaul, Professor Lockhart clerked for two federal judges and consulted for an Africa-focused private equity company. He also was an associate at Hogan Lovells, where he spent time in both the firm’s corporate and investigations groups and maintained a pro bono practice.  

Professor Lockhart’s legal scholarship has been published in the Virginia Law Review, the Boston College Law Review and the Georgetown Journal of International Law. He received his BA, magna cum laude, from Boston College and his JD, order of the coif, from the University of Virginia.
