IU McKinney’s Lawrence Jegen leaves legacy of teaching

Lawrence Jegen III, longtime professor at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, built a national reputation as one of the foremost experts in tax law, offering his insight to lawyers, accountants, elected officials and the Internal Revenue Service, but he spent much of his professional life in the place he most loved — the classroom.

Ronald Katz, co-founding partner of Katz Korin Cunningham, enrolled in IU McKinney after completing a bachelor’s degree in accounting. Katz said Jegen not only taught him about the creativity and work ethic required to practice law, but also made him better than what he thought he could be.

Katz also came to believe that teaching for Jegen was more than personally fulfilling. It was a kind of therapy that helped Jegen overcome the difficulties he faced, especially when his daughter died. “I think teaching was what kept him working,” Katz said.
