242: Training Lawyers to Teaching Law - with Robert B. Ahdieh, Dean & Endowed Dean's Chair, Texas A&M University School of Law

Welcome back to America’s leading higher education podcast! In this episode of The EdUp Experience, sponsored by the Black History and Culture Academy, we welcome Robert B. Ahdieh, Dean & Endowed Dean's Chair at Texas A&M University School of Law with special guest cohost Arbazz Nizami

Do you think you know the law?  Think again!  Bobby and Texas A&M invest in the human capital elements of education which shifts from "training lawyers" to "teaching law" to a broader audience.  Bobby brings law teachings to non-lawyers in fields like human resources, healthcare, and journalism.  Law is a public good and needs advocates, it's complex, and it's shifting - especially given covid and social justice events in the last year and a half.  Bobby brings important insights into the field of law and where it's headed.

A graduate of Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and Yale Law School, Robert B. Ahdieh served as law clerk to Judge James R. Browning of the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit before his selection for the Honor's Program in the Civil Division of the US Department of Justice.  Ahdieh has served as a visiting professor at Columbia and Georgetown law schools, as well as at Princeton University. He has also visited at the Institute for Advanced Study, at the University of British Columbia, the University of Warsaw, and Singapore Management University, among other overseas institutions.
