Law professors Manta, Margolis head coast to coast for presentations

Irina Manta, assistant professor in the School of Law, presented at the Law & Society Association annual meeting in San Francisco in June. At the conference, she spoke on “The Reasonably Biased Man: Objective Tests, Jury Effects and the Copyright Dilemma.”


Kenneth Margolis, professor, director of the CaseArc Integrated Lawyering Skills Program and co-director of the Milton A. Kramer Law Clinic Center, co-presented a workshop at the Institute for Law, Teaching and Learning Conference at New York Law School. In the presentation, titled “Teaching Lawyer Effectiveness Across the Curriculum,” Margolis and his co-facilitator led participants in exercises designed to integrate experiential education and the teaching of fundamental lawyering skills into courses beyond clinics, externships or labs.

Additionally, he participated in a panel discussion at the AALS Conference of the Section of Clinical Legal Education in Seattle. During the panel, “Solving the Problem of Curricular Reform,” Margolis discussed the process of adoption and implementation of the CaseArc program.
