Associate Dean for Faculty Development
Professor of Law
"Students at Chase inspire me. They work hard and expect to be challenged both to analyze legal doctrine and to develop the professional judgment necessary to think strategically. The most rewarding parts of my job are to help the students achieve their personal bests in the classroom, define their career goals and find the paths to satisfying lives after law school."
