“The vigor of the student body at William Mitchell makes this a terrific place to teach. I enjoy bringing my ABA public service work (on UCC Article 2 and e-commerce law) to my teaching to infuse real-life concerns and situations into the classroom. In addition, my students’ input plays a key role in helping me write text books on sales law, contract law, writing, and research.”
