"Joan was an outstanding member of T/J Technologies' Board of Directors and contributed valuable insights to the company from inception to acquisition by A123Systems. Joan served as Treasurer and Secretary on the board. Joan's business, legal and accounting expertise made her a valuable board member who consistently delivered sound advice. Her opinions were solicited and respected by company executives and other board members. She is a great coach and a thoughtful, caring individual. I highly recommend her."
Maria Thompson, President and CEO, T/J Technologies, Inc.


THE REFORMED LAW PROF(SM) was born out of the frustration voiced by practitioners of the lack of preparation of new lawyers for the business of the practice of law. This lack of preparation is not so much the fault of novice lawyers but is instead the result of a deliberate choice of the legal academy to focus almost exclusively on teaching doctrinal law and analytical reasoning skills to the exclusion of practice management and leadership training.

As a seasoned and tenured member of the legal academy, Joan chooses to share the blame with her ivory tower colleagues in providing law students with only a portion of the critical tools they need to effectively practice law. Having learned the error of her ways, Joan considers herself reformed (hence the name, "THE REFORMED LAW PROF"), and sees it as her obligation to fill in the gap between the theory of the classroom and the realities of practice within and beyond the law school environment. She draws upon her MBA in Finance and Accounting from the University of Michigan and her experience as a CPA to train law students and lawyers on effective practice management skills through seminars, workshops, and one-on-one coaching sessions.
