Ken Hirsh is many things. Professionally, he is Director of the Law Library and Information Technology and a Professor of Practice at the University of Cincinnati College of Law. He has been involved with law school libraries and technology for the past twenty-six years. He is active in the American Association of Law Libraries, is currently a member of its executive board, and in fact has an award named for him by the association’s Computing Services Special Interest Section. He served on the board of the Center for Computer Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI) from 2002 – 2015. Although some friends and family have called him a gentleman and a scholar, he is much more the former than the latter.
He is married and the proud father of three children. Ken is a trivia nut, especially about 1950’s – 1970’s television, and his nearly life-long dream is to appear as a contestant on “Jeopardy!”
