A Q&A with Tom Cary, Academic Program Director, Associate Dean of the School of Management
Q: What is your terminal degree in and where did you get it from?
A: JD, University of California, Hastings.
Q: What do you do for fun?
A: Play, coach, and referee soccer. Hike. Play with family.
Q: What classes do you teach?
A: BSC 403 Legal Issues in the Workplace.
Q: Why did you decide to start teaching?
A: I volunteer-taught at a high school while practicing law. I realized my high point each week was the classroom, not the courtroom, so I made the switch.
Q: Why do you enjoy teaching at CityU?
A: Because of the great students.
Q: What’s one thing you always tell your students that may or may not relate to your class?
A: When in doubt, consult a lawyer.
Q: Any fond CityU memories that you can share?
A: One of my favorite memories was from a CityU graduation when I was walking in with a high school friend who was receiving the award as CityU teacher of the year. We had walked down the same aisle 30 years ago at our own high school graduation when we were the class speakers.
Q: What might you tell a student who was thinking of taking one of your classes?
A: You will learn to think like a lawyer.
Q: What is something that you have learned from end-of-course evaluations that you applied later on?
A: More talking from me does not mean more learning by the students.
