Professor Burch to argue before the Palau Supreme Court, Publishes Book Chapter


Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School (AJMLS) faculty are diverse in trial, classroom, and scholarship experience, with a strong international presence. When stateside, Professor Burch teaches a variety of courses at AJMLS, including Civil Procedure, Constitutional Law; and presents at conferences such as the recent Law Teaching Strategies for a New Era: Beyond the Physical Classroom Conference.

Professor Burch is set to argue before the Palau Supreme Court, Appellate Division next week. On Friday, August 13th, Professor Burch will represent the Republic of Palau in oral argument in the case of Ochedaruchei Clan v. Oilouch, where she will be presenting argument on the issue of sovereign immunity. Professor Burch is assisting the Republic of Palau’s Office of Attorney General while she is on a leave of absence from the Law School.

In addition,¬†Professor Burch’s chapter titled: “Blasphemy! Skills-Based Constitutional Law Online” has been published by Carolina Academic Press in “Law Teaching Strategies For a New Era”. Professor Burch’s chapter discusses how to design formative assessments that scaffold skills acquisition and provide opportunities for students to acquire competency in course material.

Atlanta’s John Marshall students have had the pleasure of learning from Professor Burch since 2003 and we look forward to her classroom return.
