DETROIT (Aug. 19, 2010) – Wayne State University Law School is pleased announce that Serban S. Vacarelu will join the faculty as a visiting professor for the fall 2010 semester.

Vacarelu earned a bachelor of arts from the University of Oradea, Romania, a master of laws from the Louisiana State University Paul M.
