Hi, I'm Michael, and I have been curating spaces for students and professionals to make mistakes—and learn from them—since 2009.
Before I started Praktio, I was a law professor at the University of Michigan and the University of Chicago. I saw the need for students to get hands-on experience when it came to working with contracts; so, I founded transactional clinics at Michigan and Chicago to give law students the opportunity to work, under my supervision, for some of the biggest companies around the world and innovative local startups and nonprofits too. I've also written a couple books on practical contracts (published by Aspen/Wolters Kluwer).
Having practiced at a large law firm (Sidley in Chicago) and having transitioned from there to academia (and then again into a legal edtech startup), I know first-hand the excitement and challenge presented by a potential career move.
"By far the most helpful course I've experienced."
"Contract Fundamentals is a very good teaching presentation of the different parts of a typical contract."
