We're very pleased to have Professor Todd Berger from Rutgers-Camden joining us on the legal skills blog as a contributing editor. Professor Berger is a clinician and former criminal defense attorney. From his bio:
Todd A. Berger is a 2003 graduate of Temple University School of Law. He also earned an L.L.M. in Trial Advocacy from Temple University in 2007. He is currently the Managing Attorney of the Federal Prisoner Reentry Project at Rutgers School of Law-Camden. Prior to coming to Rutgers he worked as an assistant public defender with the Defender Association of Philadelphia, representing indigent defendants throughout all stages of the criminal justice system, from preliminary arraignment through trial and post-verdict motions. He worked as a supervisor in both the Municipal Court and Felony Waiver Units, assisting new attorneys in trial preparation and courtroom practice. He also served in the Major Trials Unit representing clients in jury trials involving the most serious non-homicide felony charges.

Professor Berger will be covering the clinical legal education beat among other topics. We look forward to his contributions.
