Marianne DelPo Kulow Selected as Master Teacher Finalist by the Academy of Legal Studies in Business (ALSB)
Associate Professor of Law Marianne DelPo Kulow was selected as one of four Master Teacher Finalists by the Academy of Legal Studies in Business (ALSB), the international organization of professors who teach law in business schools. Kulow will present in August at the ALSB annual conference in New Orleans.
The competition reviews proposals of classes that are taught within the "Legal Environment of Business" course required for undergraduate business majors. Kulow's proposal covers the federal statute that prohibits workplace discrimination based on physical or mental disability. The class includes a video clip from the film Philadelphia and asks students to practice using the statutory definitions on a hypothetical case of an employee with AIDS. It then shifts to mental disabilities and includes a mini-lecture building up to a small group exercise where students play the role of a manager attempting to accommodate an employee with a mental illness.
