Hank Shea | Professor at the University of St. Thomas School of Law and the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law

As the former Assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Minnesota for almost 20 years, Shea was one of the country's most effective white-collar crime prosecutors. Between 1994 and 1998, Shea served as the Chief of his Office's Economic Crime Section. From crimes that Shea prosecuted, the U.S. Attorney's Office collected more than $50 million in restitution, fines, and forfeitures.

A graduate of Georgetown with a degree in foreign service and of Harvard Law School, Shea did active duty in the U.S. Army and went on to serve as Assistant to the General Counsel of the Army at the Pentagon and in the Judge Advocate General Corps.
