June Friedman Entman
Professor Entman’s teaching style and her ability to clearly explain often foreign
and complex legal concepts resonated with first-year law students as well as senior
law students. As a professor, she encouraged class participation, analysis, and creative
thinking. Her students have described her teaching style as “stimulating in both discussion
and thought,” and doing so with a wonderful attitude and a sense of dry humor.
Many of her former students, now practicing attorneys, note that Professor Entman’s
“teaching” did not end upon their graduation. She has always been available to offer
her opinions on a number of procedural issues whenever called upon to do so. Her students
and former students hold her in the highest esteem, and her retirement is a great
loss to the law school and the University as a whole.
