Phillip D. Kline joined the School of Law in the spring of 2009. Prior to teaching at the law school, he served in Kansas as the Johnson County District Attorney where he managed over 8,500 criminal cases each year.
After completing his studies in political science and public relations, Kline earned his J.D. from the University Of Kansas School Of Law where he served as Associate Editor of the Kansas Law Review and Editor of the Kansas Criminal Justice Review.
Kline’s pro-life leadership, as written by columnist Bob Novak, opened a new front on the abortion wars and placed Kansas in the epicenter of the current battle over the sanctity of human life.
A successful lawyer in private practice, Kline has represented states and state agencies in large, complex civil litigation and large international interests in construction mediation, arbitration, and litigation.
