“The "tried and true" case
study method once again proved to be an excellent teaching approach
to understanding and navigating complex management and leadership
issues. The faculty did an exceptional job at applying case study
scenarios to contemporary issues we all are facing in today's law
The case study scenarios hit so close to home, I suspected the faculty had been
conducting a covert surveillance program at our firm for the past 2 years.”
