Professor Rob Merkin

"I like the intellectual challenge of law, solving problems, trying to work out answers from previous situations and dealing with completely new issues. One of the things I do is straddle both academia and practice. When I go to law firms, I actually learn what’s going on in the market and that feeds into what I teach. I’m able to teach what really matters." Read more.
