"Cooley's LL.M. programs target both complex and developing areas of law," said Associate Dean of Faculty and LL.M. Programs Charles P. Cercone. "I am most proud of the tremendous lawyers -- David Berry, Gerry Tschura, Gina Torielli, Joni Larson, Mike McDaniel, Lisa DeMoss, Chris Johnson, and Jim Carey -- who left their prestigious law practices to become professors here and lead these programs. Over the last 10 years they have provided our LL.M. students with the uncommon opportunity to learn from them and the great adjuncts they recruited, and to grow personally and professionally. Under their leadership, these programs are well-positioned to provide an invaluable credential for future students seeking to broaden their career opportunities."
