I strive in my teaching to expose students to the essentials of the subject matter, to stimulate their passion for learning, to engage them with the material, and to help them sharpen their critical-thinking skills. In addition, as an attorney who regularly advises small businesses, I focus my approach to the material to the practical realities of business that my students are likely to encounter. I make reference to current events, and to my practical experience in legal matters, as the cases in today's headlines are often those cases that we most readily understand, and that illuminate the law and philosophical ethics.
Understanding that different persons have different ways of learning, I mix lectures with group projects, short case summaries, and longer case analyses, to provide students with different challenges and different means of being evaluated. In-class participation is encouraged and graded.
