Professor Sullivan Named to State Business Law Commission
Governor Mitch Daniels has appointed Professor Frank Sullivan, Jr., to the Indiana Business Law Survey Commission. Sullivan teaches courses in business and commercial law.
The Commission was established as a permanent voluntary body in 1988 by the General Assembly. It monitors developments in laws that affect corporations, limited liability companies, and partnerships and advises the General Assembly on amendments and new legislation to keep Indiana's corporate and related laws "state of the art."

As a member of the Court, he wrote and participated in numerous decisions involving business and commercial law. Prior to his appointment to the Court, Professor Sullivan served as Indiana State Budget Director and as Executive Assistant for Fiscal Policy to Governor Evan Bayh in 1993. Prior to state service, he practiced corporate finance and securities law in the Indianapolis office of Barnes & Thornburg.
