Professor Bobbi Jo Boyd Named 2011 Spring Fellow for NIFTEP
RALEIGH, N.C. – Professor Bobbi Jo Boyd has been selected a spring 2011 Fellow for the National Institute for Teaching Ethics and Professionalism.
The National Institute for Teaching Ethics and Professionalism (NIFTEP), established in 2005, hosts bi-annual workshops that bring together leading academics and practitioners involved in teaching legal ethics and promoting professionalism. The workshop, which is co-sponsored by the ABA Standing Committee on Professionalism, will take place April 29 - May 1, 2011, at the University of St. Thomas' Gainey Conference Center.
The themes for the spring 2011 workshop are:
What can law teachers and practitioners in one country learn from what is being done in other countries to develop innovative and effective ways of teaching ethics and professionalism?
How can teaching ethics and professionalism address practicing law in an increasingly global context?
“We are thrilled that Bobbi Jo was selected from such a competitive field,” said Dean Melissa Essary. “It is a credit to our faculty that they are not only dedicated to rigorous teaching and instruction, they are equally committed to pursuing relevant scholarship outside the classroom.”
