Associate Dean for Academics
Professor of Legal Writing

"One of Chase's best features is that it gives its students the opportunity to test their skills against the skills of other law students throughout the country. As the moot court advisor, I have been able to send teams to San Diego, New York City, Washington, D.C., Chicago, Boston, and other great cities to compete in various moot court competitions. I am proud to say that Chase students have done exceptionally well at these competitions, and our trophy case serves as proof of our students' success."
