Eldon H. Reiley

Professor Emeritus

Professor Emeritus Eldon H. Reiley retired in 2006 after 47 years of teaching law, including 35 years at the USF School of Law where he taught courses in constitutional law, contracts, commercial law, and international law. He was the founding director of the law school's LLM program for foreign lawyers. He negotiated the establishment of a faculty exchange agreement with East China Institute for Politics and Law (1989) and USF summer abroad programs in London (University of Warwick, 1978), Dublin (Trinity College, 1983), and Prague (Charles University, 1991). Reiley taught as a visiting professor at University of Warwick, Shanghai Institute of Foreign Trade, and East China Institute of Law.

In the 1982–1983 academic year, Reiley developed and taught, with Dr. Marcus Conant, the first course in America on legal issues relating to AIDS.

His publications include The American Legal System for Foreign Lawyers (Wolters Kluwer, 2011), co-authored with Professor Connie de la Vega, Security Interests in Personal Property (West, Third Edition 1999–2009), International Sales Contracts: The U.N. Conventions and Related Transnational Law (Carolina Academic Press, 2008), and numerous articles.

While in general practice in Spokane, Wash., Reiley was chairman of the Washington State Young Lawyers, State Bar Legal Education Committee, and Board of Trustees of Spokane Community College.
