Today we are mourning the loss of Professor Peter Henning who passed away on Sunday after a battle with an aggressive form of frontotemporal dementia. Professor Henning joined the Wayne Law family as a faculty member in 1994 and was an inspirational mentor, teacher, and friend. He helped train generations of lawyers, and the entire legal community suffers a loss with his passing.
He was a beloved and brilliant legal scholar, teaching and writing about corporations, white-collar crime, and criminal law. Before taking on the title of professor at Wayne Law, he had a notable career as a federal prosecutor. He worked as a senior attorney in the Division of Enforcement at the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission and later moved to the Criminal Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, where he worked in the Fraud Section on the investigation and prosecution of bank fraud.
