Mark Burge joined this blog in December 2015 and posted regularly until the blog hiatus earlier this year. Mark has taught at the Texas A&M University School of Law since 2005, when it was the Texas Wesleyan University School of Law. Mark appreciated the blog hiatus, in part because it freed up time for a book project and administrative duties as the Director of his law school's San Antonio Master of Jurisprudence (M.Jur.) program. The resulting book is Legal Literacy and Communication Skills: Working with Law and Lawyers (CAP 2020), co-authored with Jennifer Romig of Emory University School of Law. Mark is also the co-author—with our blog editor emeritus Frank Snyder (also of Texas A&M)—of the open source casebook American Contract Law for a Global Age (CALI 2017).
Mark has taught a range of courses relevant to our subject matter, including Contracts, Sales and Leases, Payment Systems, and Contract Drafting. He has published on commercial law topics, including virtual currency, payment systems, choice-of-law clauses, and alternative dispute resolution. We are delighted that Mark is able to join us for the blog re-boot, and we look forward to his contributions in this space!
