Teaching

Teaching 2I teach classes related to constitutional law and civil rights, including Constitutional Law I and II, Constitutional Litigation, and Criminal Procedure.

I have also developed a number of innovative classes. While a Visiting Professor at the UCLA School of Law in fall 2013, I designed and taught a seminar, “Commodification,  Law, and Public Policy.” Several students from the class published their final papers in law reviews and other scholarly venues. In spring 2015, I developed and co-taught a class called “Constitutional Litigation Practicum,” which combined doctrinal and skills-based learning, with well-known Denver civil rights litigator Qusair Mohamedbhai. I wrote about the Practicum here.

My teaching evaluations are available here.

In addition to my classroom teaching responsibilities, I have supervised over two dozen student directed research projects on topics related to my teaching and research. Several students have gone on to publish their research in law reviews and other scholarly venues.

I am happy to share syllabi and other materials for any of my courses. You can reach me at nleong@law.du.edu.
