I began law teaching at DePaul University in 1975, and joined the
faculty at West Virginia University in 1977. I have held visiting
appointments at the University of Kentucky, Washington & Lee,
and in the Department of Legal Studies at the University of Massachusetts,
My teaching now focuses on the "turn to narrative"
in legal education and the legal profession (lawyers and literature,
lawyers and film, the lawyer as storyteller) and advanced courses
on criminal law (film courses that focus on crime film documentaries
and convicting the innocent). In the story|narrative|film courses,
I ask students to read literary texts and watch films and explore
the broader meaning of their work and their lives as lawyers.
