My teaching interests stem in large part from my former career as a litigator in the fields of Constitutional Law, Poverty Law, and Family Law.  Additionally, my work as a Pre-Law Advisor and my experiences teaching law in a variety of settings have led to a particular interest in the ways in which legal knowledge is disseminated at various levels and to different audiences. Before I began my formal teaching career, I coordinated and led a number of legal education workshops and trainings for low-income communities, anti-poverty advocates, and advocates for victims of domestic violence. I am committed to the notion that increased access to law, to formal legal education, and to knowledge about the law are critical to the maintenance of the rule of law in a constitutional democracy.
