Professor Voigt teaches Legal Research and Writing I and II. Because of his passion for excellence, he constantly challenges his students and himself. Professor Voigt uses various innovative methods in the classroom to teach and assess students. He will discuss two engaging methods this summer at the Institute for Law Teaching and Learning Conference. In addition, his forthcoming article sets forth creative ways to teach students about the benefits and limitations of Google Scholar and about the cost of electronic research outside the law school bubble.
Prior to joining the law school in August 2010, Professor Voigt litigated complex matters at Faruki Ireland & Cox P.L.L. in Ohio (from 2003-2010). His practice areas included class actions, business torts, unfair competition, breach of contract, employment law, privacy matters, antitrust, and dealer terminations. Further, Professor Voigt represented large companies in cases involving false advertising and product recalls. He also trained junior associates on research and writing skills.
Professor Voigt graduated with a B.A. in Economics with Honors from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (2000) and then graduated magna cum laude from Indiana University Maurer School of Law (2003). For the Indiana Law Journal, he was an associate editor and later selected to be a Notes and Comments Editor.
Professor Voigt recently married his wife, Julie. They are members of Christ Community Church where they teach kids about the Bible. He enjoys running (finished his first and only marathon in 2005), road biking, and hiking. He is also an amateur gardener.
