Steven Lubet brings years of legal services and clinical law experience to his role as former director of the award-winning Bartlit Center for Trial Advocacy. The unifying theme of the Center is advocacy education, and Lubet wants "people to come out of law school and say, 'I've entered a noble profession and I really want to make a contribution."
