Furthermore, the members of the Professional Practice faculty have worked as judicial clerks and legislative attorneys. Their combined experience brings a total of more than 50 years of practicing law to the classroom. The Professors of Professional Practice teach only within the legal writing curriculum and are devoted solely to teaching skills education.
