Meet the Library Staff: John Pachkowski

John M. Pachkowski, Esq., Adjunct Reference Librarian is at the Reference Desk every other Saturday during the fall and spring semesters. Not only does John answer questions, but he also files pages in four of the library’s CCH looseleaf reporters. He is well acquainted with Commerce Clearing House publications because during the week he works at home as a writer/analyst for the CCH Federal Banking Law Reporter. John is also part of the CCH Editorial Staff who produce the daily online Bank Digest, which tracks federal policies and regulations. John grew up in central New Jersey, graduated from Temple University, and was in the 1988 class of Delaware Law School, the last class before the school became Widener University School of Law. He worked during summers while in law school at the CCH office in Clark, NJ, and joined the staff after graduation.

After CCH was acquired by Wolters Kluwer in 1996 and closed the New Jersey office, John was able to start working from his home in Concordville, PA, which he shares with his wife, Mary Alice Peeling. He teaches a class for Advanced Legal Research explaining the use of looseleaf resources and the CCH IntelliConnect database. While working at home, John tends to a clowder of cats and his husky-mix Tulip keeps him company. He likes to cook and is renowned for his gourmet dinners to benefit PILA and St. John’s Episcopal Church, but he also enjoys going out to restaurants. John likes helping students and others who come to the Reference Desk on Saturdays because it gives him an opportunity to learn about aspects of law other than banking.
