Kathryn Mercer, professor of lawyering skills in the School of Law, has presented around the world in recent months. In May, she co-presented with Law Professor Jonathan Gordon at Global Legal Skills Conference IX in Verona, Italy. The title of their talk was “A Multi-Cultural Perspective on Plagiarism: Teaching About an Age-old Problem in the New Age of the Global Student.”
The next month, she presented “Gender, Communication, and the Academy: To Thine Own Self Be True, But Don’t Forsake Your Goals” at the 16th Legal Writing Institute in Philadelphia.
Then, in July, she traveled to Beijing, where she taught a two-week course on American Criminal Procedure and Law at the China University of Political Science and Law, which Case Western Reserve School of Law has a newly developed agreement to exchange students and faculty.
