In summary, I see my role as doing three
you an opportunity to test your knowledge of the law and law-related issues
though a variety of means, writing, discussion--including the Socratic method,
activities and examinations;
myself about your work (reading it, listening to it, participating in it) and
providing you with formal and informal feedback and evaluation;
you things to think about.
In return, I expect each student to:
Disbelief (be willing to look at things in ways different than your
it your best effort.
If we do this we can maximize the benefits of our collective efforts.
We will have a variety of learning and evaluation activities. It
is my hope that this will give every student an opportunity to excel.
have been a lawyer for over 30 years, and I believe strongly in the role of law
(and lawyers) in our society, particularly the business sectors.
