Presenter Biography:
Marie Failinger, Professor, Mitchell Hamline School of Law Professor
Marie Failinger holds the Judge Edward J. Devitt Professorship and served as interim dean of Hamline University School of Law prior to its combination with William Mitchell College of Law.  She was awarded the degree of Doctor of Laws honoris causa by Valparaiso University in 2014 and is the recipient of the Elizabeth Hurlock Beckman award, Minnesota Lawyer Attorney of the Year Award, the Minnesota Women lawyers Myra Bradwell Award, and Service to MWL awards, the Journal of Law and Religion Achievement Award, the Wesley Faculty Award, and the Minnesota Justice Foundation Law School Professor Award.

Michael Steenson, Professor at Mitchell Hamline School of Law
Professor Michael Steenson holds the Margaret H. and James E. Kelley Professor of Tort Law. My work with the Minnesota District Judges Association Civil Jury Instruction Guides Committee has enabled me to gain important insights into the way tort law is implemented in Minnesota, as well as in other jurisdictions.  The committee of excellent judges Peter Knapp and I have had the privilege to work with over the course of many years on the Minnesota Civil Jury Instruction Guides and accompanying Handbook has had a significant impact on how I perceive and teach the law of torts to my students.  I also teach constitutional law as well as seminars on American legal history and religion and the constitution.  My interest in constitutional law was rekindled after my experience in China during the Tiananmen Square protests in 1989.”

Application has been made for 1.0 Standard CLE credit and Event Code TBA.
