Classroom tactics for engaging your students

I love working through the hypotheticals, doing group work, and providing an opportunity for role playing.

Best advice to students coping with the stresses of law school

Remember it’s a first step, and very few things are unfixable. Take care of yourself: eat well, sleep when you can, exercise. Remember that it’s stressful but also exciting—learning and growing, preparing to do meaningful work.

Greatest source of satisfaction as a teacher

Hearing from graduates how what they learned from me helps them in practice.
