What inspires me to teach?

In teaching I strive to help my students bridge the gap between law student and junior associate.  I love hearing from former students who say that something they learned from one of my classes helped them navigate a tricky problem at work.

Why do lawyers matter?

Corporate attorneys matter because they can act as a restraining force on their corporate clients by helping shape their business activities to comply with the law.  While not always popular, corporate attorney bring a public voice, as express through the law, into the otherwise private and privileged setting of the board room.
