Besides actually practicing law, the thing Professor Decker enjoys most about working in the legal arena is sharing the litigation knowledge and experience she has gained over the years with soon to be lawyers, newly minted lawyers, and other members of the legal community.

Whether at a law school or in a non-academic professional development setting, Professor Decker uses her love of litigation to weave together a combination of black letter law and practical skills to create a comprehensive learning experience.
