Sarah Ricks is recognized for her teaching of practical skills

RicksSarah Ricks of Rutgers-Camden was recently recognized for her outstanding teaching of the practical side of lawyering. Even before the current emphasis on skills training, her course Current Issues in Civil Rights Litigation engaged students through simulated legal problems. This past year, Ricks taught the course at the University of Pennsylvania School of Law and received rave reviews. As a press release from Rutgers explained, “The entire design of the course is based around engaging students beyond the traditional realm of learning doctrine. [Ricks] brought in guest speakers, provided examples about doctrine and practice from her own career, and wove in many lessons on practical aspects of being a litigator. She also encouraged debate and discussion that solicited conflicting opinions on many topics.”
