Associate Professor of Legal Writing
Adjunct Professor of Management, Babcock Graduate School
As one of the longest serving members of the Wake Forest faculty Legal Analysis, Writing, and Research (LAWR) group, Miki Felsenburg is currently teaching her seventeenth law school 1L class along and is also currently teaching Appellate Advocacy.
Along with a strong dedication to good teaching, Professor Felsenburg is currently deeply involved in a long-term research project concentrating on the earliest portion of LAWR instruction. In 2007, Felsenburg (and Professor Laura P. Graham) began an empirical study of the incoming first-year classes at two schools to learn more about their struggles during this vital and especially difficult instructional period.
The early draft of Prof. Felsenburg & Graham's first article about the research was considered "groundbreaking," and was a "top ten download" on the Social Sciences Research Network (SSRN) for more than three months.
That article is now finished and available on the lwionline.org website (the website of the Legal Writing Institute (LWI)). The article will appear in print in the Fall, 2010, Journal of the Legal Writing Institute.
In addition, Profs. Felsenburg and Graham have presented their findings at several important venues, including the June, 2010, national biennial conference of the LWI. They are currently working on their second article in the series about this important research.
Professor Felsenburg currently teaches LAWR 1-2 and Appellate Advocacy. For many years, she also taught business law-related courses in the Babcock Graduate School of Management, and she has both MBA and JD degrees.
Outside of school, Professor Felsenburg enjoys playing and watching sports. She and her partner can usually be found at Wake Forest's basketball and football games, playing golf, or wherever there's an auction, antique show, or flea market going on.
