Dean Nell Jessup Newton has announced the appointment of Professor Stephen J. Cribari as co-director (with Professor Geoffrey Bennett) of the NDLS London Summer Program.
Cribari teaches at the University of Minnesota Law School and was previously an NDLS Visiting Professor in London, where he taught a course in Law and Cultural Heritage to rave reviews. A published poet, playwright, screenwriter, and librettist, he is the Reporter for the Criminal Pattern Jury Instruction Committee of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit and a former Federal Public Defender who has twice argued before the U.S. Supreme Court. In Minnesota he teaches criminal procedure, law and archaeology, evidence, physical evidence/expert testimony, and criminal law.
In accepting the post, Professor Cribari said, “London is a rich and rare opportunity and I want to open the classroom into the cultural present as well as the cultural history of London.”
