Thanks to Al and Dan and everyone at The Faculty Lounge for letting me sit a spell with y'all. As Al mentioned in his intro, I write about and teach civil procedure, employment discrimination, employment law and related subjects. In addition to the Utah Law Review, my work has appeared in the Rutgers Law Review and in the California Law Review Circuit. I practiced for 11½ years (to the day) before making the leap into full time teaching in 2011. Given my background, I teach both doctrinal courses (into which I often infuse skills) and skills courses (into which I often infuse doctrine).
During my sojourn in the Lounge, I hope to engage in some discussions related to teaching, curricular reform, experiential education, and, perhaps, such exciting topics as factual causation standards, grammar in Supreme Court opinions, and the impact of judicial nominations on the decision making of the lower federal courts. I will assume you are all waiting with bated breath.
