What inspires me to teach?

I’m honored to be part of so many unique journeys from layperson to lawyer. Some great stuff happens here: terrific questions and engaged discussions.   Even better is when a student gets her first job or wins a case or, on a particularly good day, tells you something you did made a real difference for her.

Why do lawyers matter?

My first client wanted a simple name change.  It wasn’t difficult—look up a rule, file a form. She was grateful; I was too. She had trusted me with the opportunity to do what lawyers do, which is using our skill and knowledge to help.
