For the fourth consecutive year, Long Island employment lawyer Matt Weinick has been asked to return to Hofstra Law School to teach the Foundational Lawyering Skills class. Weinick will be designated as a Special Instructor to teach second year law students, commonly referred to as “2L’s.”
According to Hofstra Law School’s website, the Foundational Lawyering Skills class is a required course for all second year students. It teaches “core lawyering skills” such as litigation and transactional lawyering. Instructors assess the students’ competency in those skills. The class is comprised of a lecture and “break-out classes.” Weinick will be instructing one section of the break-out class on Tuesday afternoons.
The fall 2018 semester will be the fourth year in a row Weinick has participated as an instructor in the Foundational Lawyering Skills class program. Last year Weinick’s students commented that he was “pleasant,” “professional,” gave “thoughtful feedback,” “He was good, seemed effective,” and he was “Great, informative, knew the material, gave effective comments.”
On his appointment, Weinick said, “I love being a part of the Hofstra Law community and playing a role in the education of our next generation of lawyers.” Weinick further noted that both he and Peter Famighetti are graduates of Hofstra and that, “F&W and Hofstra have an important relationship and we are grateful for all that we do together.” For instance, through Hofstra’s Alumni office, Weinick was admitted to the United States Supreme Court this year and F&W hired a devoted and hard working law clerk, Thalia Olaya.
