Law professor presents career consultation podcast

January 6, 2012

Loyola University New Orleans College of Law professor Mitch Crusto moderated and presented a podcast for the American Bar Association on Dec. 14, 2011, as part of an ABA online career consultation program.

The program, “Transitioning from Law Practice to the Academy,” informed practicing lawyers of career opportunities within legal academics and explored the panelists’ personal experiences in transitioning from practice to teaching law. The podcast can be heard here.

Two other professors, Amanda Foster from Nova Southeastern University Law Center and Jennifer Smith from Florida A&M University College of Law, participated in the podcast. Loyola Law alumnus Maurice Ruffin, J.D. ’03, an associate at Krebs, Farley & Pelleteri, PLLC, created, facilitated and also participated in the program.

Crusto, formerly a corporate lawyer with Monsanto Corporation, a government executive, and an associate with Jones Walker law firm, described his path from law practice to becoming a law professor. At Loyola, he teaches the Legal Profession course, which introduces the nature of law practice and explores its ethics issues. Relative to the transitioning from law practice program, Crusto noted that “the ABA program is invaluable as it provides practitioners career paths to law teaching and other careers in the academic community.”
