BC Law Impact Editor’s Note: We pride ourselves at Boston College Law School on our unique community that cultivates an incredible student body with a brilliant faculty. This post is part of an ongoing faculty spotlight Q&A series to help students get to know the members of our faculty on a more personal level. It will run throughout the next year.
- Why did you choose to teach at BC Law?
I am a graduate. I think that it’s a great law school and that the students are fantastic. I couldn’t imagine teaching anywhere else.
- What is your favorite thing about BC?
The students–still attracting really nice people to study here, and I think that’s a real plus.
- What is your favorite BC Memory?
That’s a tough one. Probably my favorite memories are of Sanford Katz and Peter Donovan, two fantastic faculty members here. I had the pleasure of taking their courses when I was a student.
- If you were on a baseball team what would your walkout song be?
Sweet Caroline, keeping with my Boston roots.
- If you weren’t a professor or a lawyer, what would you be doing? What is your dream job?
Probably I would be in medicine.
- What is your favorite thing about Boston?
I grew up in Boston. I would say the Boston Harbor and the ocean. I spent a lot of time running around Castle Island, a park in South Boston, when I was a kid.
- If someone visiting Boston asked you what is the one thing they had to do, what would you tell them?
Definitely go to a Red Sox game–and do the Harbor walk.
