Having experienced law school as both a student and law professor, Rob believed that students needed a program that was devoted to teaching the practical skills that would have the greatest impact on their success in law school, on the bar, and as lawyers. He founded Sui Generis to provide a platform so students from law schools across the country could be supported on their journeys for academic and professional success.
Rob has been involved with many facets of the law. After graduating cum laude from Penn Law with honors in legal writing, Rob worked for almost a decade at some of the most prestigious law firms in the country, including Skadden and Ballard Spahr. He went on to teach Advanced Civil Procedure as an adjunct law professor and then created Sui Generis.
Graduating from law school, studying for the bar, mentoring junior attorneys, running associate training programs in Big Law, and devoting 20,000 hours to legal analysis and writing as a commercial litigator led Rob to want to spread the knowledge he wished he had known as a law student and a junior lawyer as broadly as possible. By using his experience of working closely with students and now converting Sui Generis to a free on-demand model, he hopes that generations of law students will continue to benefit from the material he has created.
“Rob has the life/work experience and the consulting experience to really be an asset to law students. This service fills a hole in legal education assistance.”
