Professor Myles Lynk, a Visiting Faculty Fellow in ASU's Barrett, The Honors College, recently spoke with Barrett honors undergraduate students about the rule of law in the United States, which helps define our sense of national identity, and the necessary and sometimes adversarial roles that lawyers play in the working of our legal system.
"Conflict or Community? The Rule of Law and the Role of Lawyers" was the title of Lynk's lecture on April 30.
Lynk, the College's Peter Kiewit Foundation Professor of Law and the Legal Profession, teaches business and corporate law, civil procedure, legal ethics and law and literature. He also is ASU's NCAA Faculty Athletics Representative, in which capacity he works closely with the university's Department of Intercollegiate Athletics on issues concerning student-athlete welfare, academic eligibility and institutional compliance with NCAA legislation and Pac-10 Conference rules.
