Last fall, I checked a box that’s been on my bucket list for years: I began teaching a class as a law school adjunct professor. The process has been humbling, at times exhausting, and extremely rewarding for me. And, as judged by all the questions I get, it’s intriguing to other lawyers.

While I’m by no means an expert on the topic, I want to share some impressions, lessons learned and, dare I say, best practices gleaned through my experiences. For those who may be interested in pursuing an adjunct professor role, my hope is to demystify the process and let you in on what it’s like to be behind the lectern running a law school class.
