I’ve been the director of appellate advocacy at Chicago-Kent since the fall of 2019, and I’ve taught at Chicago-Kent since 2010. For most of those years, I taught Legal Writing IV for International LL.M. Students, and for many of those years, I was also our school’s writing specialist. My full bio is here.
Moot court was my favorite part of law school. While I attended Chicago-Kent as a student, I was one of our MCHS’s vice presidents, and I won all three moot court competitions I entered. During the three and a half years I spent as a litigator at Winston & Strawn in Chicago, returning to judge moot court practices was often the highlight of my week, and I always happily judged during our internal competition. Becoming the director of our appellate advocacy program felt like coming home.
I believe moot court inspires students to both work hard and have fun—key to any fulfilling experience in life, and why I love moot court so much.
