John H. Shannon is a Professor of Legal Studies at the Stillman School of Business at Seton Hall University. His teaching and research interests focus on the intersection of law, business, and technology. He emphasizes issues and challenges propelled by digital transformation and its impact on the established order in business, law, and society. His recent articles explore the dynamics of disruption, leadership, and innovation.

Shannon has developed innovative learning environments, having taught undergraduate and graduate courses focused on the legal environment, corporate governance, ethics, public policy, and disruption. He examines issues related to digital transformation in Disruption, Technology, & Law, exploring how individuals and organizations can anticipate and adapt to technological change, using these disruptions as catalysts for innovation. He has been a leader of the Ideas & Trends seminar offered by the Buccino Leadership Institute, challenging students to identify and evaluate how digital innovation affects business, politics, culture, and society. These learning environments help his students to develop what he calls a FAIR (Flexible, Adaptable, Imaginative, and Resilient) mindset in preparation for a future living and working in uncertain environments. He is committed to helping others see and seize their potential and the opportunities available to them.

Shannon was previously Vice President for University Affairs at Seton Hall University, where he led all phases of the University’s external relations, including alumni relations, development, corporate communications, and government relations. Before his tenure as Vice President, Shannon served as dean of the Stillman School. While dean, he played a pivotal role in two major endeavors at Seton Hall University: the Mobile Computing Initiative and the School of Diplomacy and International Relations. Mobile Computing not only equipped all students and faculty with laptops but also facilitated the creation of a connected and technologically adept community, helping Seton Hall gain national recognition as a leader in technology-mediated learning environments. He spearheaded the establishment of the School of Diplomacy and International Relations, which enhanced Seton Hall’s academic offerings as an institution committed to global education and learning experiences. 

Seton Hall has recognized Shannon’s commitment to its mission with the McQuaid Medal for Distinguished University Service and the Hakim Faculty Service Medal. His commitment to service extends beyond the academy to significant community and volunteer roles. He has served non-profit organizations, holding board memberships, reflecting his dedication to community service and governance.
