Professor Colleen Medill has accepted an invitation by the National Conference of Bar Examiners to serve as an expert reviewer for Property Law for the Multistate Essay Exam. As an expert reviewer, Medill will review the question and the suggested answer and the scoring system for essay answers. She will provide her independent expert analysis of the clarity, level of difficulty, and weighting of the legal issues indicated by the question. Medill also will provide her expert opinion of the fairness of the question with regard to potential bias or prejudice to test-takers based on personal characteristics such as race, gender, socioeconomic status or religion.

Medill is a leading national expert on the development of lawyering skills by Property Law students. Her online supplemental book, Medill's Developing Professional Skills: Property (Interactive Lessons), platformed and published by West Academic, presents six interactive modules that Property Law professors can adopt and use to introduce skills training within the context of a traditional doctrinal Property course.
