Legal Studies Professor Selected for Law School Affiliated Program
The University of Mississippi School of Law has approved its first four affiliated faculty as part of the school’s new affiliated faculty program, which is designed to spur interaction between the school and the university’s other academic units.
Robert Mongue, associate professor of Legal Studies at Applied Sciences, was one of the four faculty members selected.
“I look forward to the opportunity to strengthen the bond between the law school and the legal studies department, especially the Paralegal Studies program,” Mongue told University Communications. “While my previous communications have focused on those of our students who intend to apply for admission to law school, I think that it would be just as helpful to both paralegal students preparing for careers as paralegals and law students preparing for careers as attorneys to engage each other during their education for purposes of improving their working relationships when that education is complete.”
