Law professor presents at SEALS conference

August 14, 2009

Loyola University New Orleans College of Law Professor Mitch Crusto presented a talk titled “Rising Tenure Standards” on a “Writing for Tenure” panel at the Southeastern Association of Law Schools’ 62nd Annual Meeting, held this month. The panel included two distinguished law school deans, two recently tenured professors, one pre-tenured professor, and Crusto. The panel explored the issues untenured faculty face relative to scholarship requirement, what untenured faculty can do to clear the air relative to the unwritten rules, and what responsibility law administration has to clarify rules and their application to untenured faculty. Crusto’s presentation was researched and drafted by third-year Loyola law student Drew Sullivan.

Crusto also served at the meeting as a mentor to a new scholar, California Western School of Law Assistant Professor Kenneth S. Klein, who presented a paper on the problems and solutions of the broken residential casualty insurance market.

Crusto also recently received notice of his biographical profile being added to the forthcoming 2010 edition of Who’s Who in America. He has been so honored every year since first listed in the 47th Edition, published in 1992.
