Richard S.L. Roddis & Family Law Library Fund

Richard S. L. Roddis had a distinguished career encompassing private practice, government, business, and the academy.

A graduate of the University of California at Berkeley (Boalt Hall), he was the Insurance Commissioner of California after seven years as a deputy attorney general, representing the state's insurance department. He was also in private practice for three years in San Diego.

He joined the Law School faculty in 1968 and served as dean from 1970 to 1978.

He left teaching in 1984 to become Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Unigard Group of insurance companies (Seattle). He retired from that position in 1988 and engaged in insurance business, regulatory, and litigation consulting practice until he returned to active faculty status in the 1990-91 academic year.

After he died, in 1999, his family established a book fund to honor him "and his great interest in reading and the law."
