Professor Anastasia M. Boles believes the study and practice of law can be a tool of personal, client, and community empowerment. Her approach to teaching is to push students to think deeply about the societal impact of legal rules and their future role as ethical practitioners and community leaders.

Boles’ classes are highly interactive; she uses a variety of teaching tools such as Socratic questioning, group exercises, practical assignments, and clicker technology. As a scholar, Boles examines the intersection between labor and employment law and legal issues involving race, age, gender, sexuality, disability, and class.
