Executive Experience

I am a civil rights attorney, with experience also in family law and domestic violence. I taught law for thirteen years at the University of St. Thomas Law Schools, stepping down as a full professor of law with tenure in 2016 to run for Mayor. In addition to my experience in the law, below are other examples of my executive experience that make me well qualified to lead the city of Minneapolis.
