Mark P. Bernstein
Before joining Drexel, Professor Bernstein was the director of the Omer Poos Law Library at Saint Louis University, where he also was an Assistant Professor of Law. He also was Associate director and senior lecturing fellow at the Duke University Law Library.
Professor Bernstein's publications include articles on the evolution of the law library, the impact of law specialization on library services and qualitative methods for evaluating the value of a library. He has taught first-year research courses as well as Advanced Legal Research.
He is keenly aware of the major shifts affecting the traditional model of legal education including the increase in practical skills courses, interdisciplinary research, joint degrees and specialized concentrations. He also realizes how the role of librarians as educators will increase as they are asked to instruct faculty and students in using new and a wider array of legal resources.
At Saint Louis University, Professor Bernstein chaired a Technology Advisory Committee, and at Duke University, he co-chaired the Implementation Committee for an Integrated Library System. He is a past chairman of the Consortium of Southeastern Law Libraries and of the Strategic Planning Committee of the Academic Law Libraries Special Interest Section.
Professor Bernstein earned his J.D. at Tulane University Law School.
