Widener University Commonwealth Law School
Commonwealth Professor of Business Advising and director of the Business Advising Program since 2020, Johnson was dean of the law school from 2015-2020. “I also speak regularly to regulators, universities and financial institutions about finance documentation across the globe including the Americas, the Middle East, Europe, Africa, Australia and Asia,” he said.
