We've previously mentioned that Memphis's Irma Russell will be visiting this coming year at Pace in New York. But two veteran contracts profs have jumped at the chance to visit one of the planet's best spots for blues, barbecue, and Elvis memorabilia. Marsha Cope Huie (Tulsa) and Scott Burnham (Montana) will fill in at Memphis for the 2005-06 year.
It's something of a homecoming for Huie (left), who earned her J.D. at Memphis, before taking an LL.M. at Cambridge University. She taught for several years at St. Mary's University in San Antonio, Texas, before joining the faculty at the University of Tulsa. In addition to contracts and commercial law, she teaches and writes in the areas of international business and EU law. Among other activities, she's a member of the Congress of Fellows of the Centre for International Legal Studies in Salzburg, Austria.
Burnham, who'll teach the spring semester, earned both his J.D. and LL.M. at NYU, has been at Montana since 1982. Probably best-known for his popular books on contract drafting, especially his new third edition of Drafting and Analyzing Contracts: A Guide to the Practical Application of the Principles of Contract Law (Lexis/Nexis), and his work with the Computer Assisted Legal Instruction project, he's also been a visiting professor at Santa Clara, Tennessee, Western New England, UNLV, and Vytautas Magnus in Lithuania, as well as doing a Fulbright to the University of Montevideo in Uruguay.
