Lawyering Skills and Strategies

Professor Maikieta Brantley’s practice focused on labor and employment issues. She has practiced litigation at the state and federal level—managing several cases for both small and large businesses. These cases required her to interact directly with clients, participate in case management conferences, and defend depositions. She also dedicated time to pro-bono landlord/tenant representation, expanding upon her development in the Landlord/Tenant Clinic at the University of Missouri School of Law.

In terms of the legal academy, she completed a fellowship in the Lawyering Process Program at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law and works as a VAP at Mitchell Hamline School of Law. Professor Brantley’s research is focused on the intersection of social media and law.
