As an Associate Professor of Law, Professor Kenny teaches Criminal Law to first-year law students. And, for the past eight years, she has taught a year-long Legal Writing and Analysis course, in which she teaches first-year law students to develop and hone their writing, editing, research, analytical, and oral advocacy skills. She also created an Advanced Legal Writing course that she will begin teaching to upper-level students in summer 2012.
