My first class with Professor Bridge was Professional Responsibility in my third year at SMU. From him I learned great respect for the ethical norms of our profession, and in his teaching he emphasized real-life obstacles that lawyers encounter. His classes included the 1980’s era high-tech innovation of using videos to demonstrate client encounters, which helped us understand and appreciate the responsibilities and obligations that come with holding a license to practice law.
