Rutgers Law School applies the same conflict-of-interest rules to adjunct professors as full-time law professors, as an adjunct at Rutgers Law School-Newark discovered to her dismay. The school forced Sheryl Mintz Goski to choose between teaching her course and representing a company in a commercial dispute with Rutgers Business School. Goski chose the client, but believes Rutgers' rule is too broad. "As an adjunct, I don't feel I represent Rutgers when I teach, I feel I teach at Rutgers," she says.
