Montgomery McCracken partner Educates on the Realities and Legalities of Cyberspace and Courtroom Prep

Montgomery McCracken partner Jeremy D. Mishkin recently brought practical knowledge and years of experience to the classroom for two groups of post-graduate students.  As a guest speaker at the University of Pittsburgh/Katz School of Business’ Executive MBA program, Mishkin taught a class entitled “Legal Issues in E-Commerce” where he covered topics such as defamation, privacy, intellectual property and new issues raised by new media.  This year’s lecture marked the sixth time Mishkin has been asked to be a guest speaker for the Katz EMBA program.

Mishkin also recently taught as an adjunct professor at Temple University’s Beasley School of Law, on the topic of “Handling Key Witnesses in Complex Litigation” as part of the school’s LL.M. in Trial Advocacy.  The program incorporates tactical, practical, and procedural aspects of trying cases to prepare practicing litigators for courtroom presentations.  Mishkin delivered a lecture/demonstration and then had students conduct mini-direct and cross examinations which he then critiqued and elicited alternative approaches.

Mishkin is chair of Montgomery McCracken’s Litigation Department and its E-Commerce practice.  He is a former managing partner of the firm.  Mishkin’s practice is national in scope, and emphasizes technology litigation, the Internet, complex commercial matters ,and First Amendment/Media Law issues.  Mishkin writes and speaks frequently on a variety of topics relating to the Internet, Censorship and the First Amendment.
