Professor Donald Bogan joined the faculty at The University of Oklahoma College of Law in 2000, following a year as a Visiting Professor.
Professor Bogan began his legal career in private practice with a predecessor to the firm of Stern & Klepfer, P.A., in Greensboro, NC. After working 15 years in North Carolina as a trial lawyer, Bogan practiced in Santa Rosa, California for four years while his spouse, a family practice doctor, completed her medical residency training. While in private practice, Bogan served as a contributing editor for THE NORTH CAROLINA PRIMA FACIE DESK MANUAL, and he participated in the work of the North Carolina Academy of Trial Lawyers. He remains active in the Association of Trial Lawyers of America. In law school, Bogan was a member of the Wake Forest Law Review and the Wake Forest Moot Court Board.
Associate Professor Bogan's current scholarship interests spring from ERISA's preemption of state law consumer protections, including the preemption of state HMO reform statutes and state law unfair insurance practices claims. His ERISA articles, Protecting Patient Rights Despite ERISA: Will the Supreme Court Allow the States to Regulate Managed Care? 74 TULANE L. REV. 951 (2000), and ERISA: The Savings Clause, section 502 Implied Preemption, Complete Preemption, and State Law Remedies, 42 SANTA CLARA L. REV. 105 (2001), evaluate ERISA's legislative history and case law applying ERISA's express and implied preemption in consumer claims arising from non-pension ERISA benefit plans.
