Nov. 1, 2018 — Two University of Houston Law Center professors presented their research on technology and pro bono work and the use of performance enhancing drugs in specific disciplines at conferences earlier this month.
Professor Alissa Rubin Gomez presented her work, "Distributing Justice in the Digital Age: The Effect of Technology on Pro Bono Service, and What Law Schools Can Do About It," at the 2018 SALT Teaching Conference Oct. 5 at Penn State Law. Her work deals with the pros and cons of increasing the ease with which lawyers can work pro bono using technology.

Professor Irene Ten Cate presented Oct. 13 at the Central States Law School Association's Annual Conference in Fort Worth. Her work-in-progress, "The Performance Enhancement Paradox," examines the use of performance-improving drugs in higher education and classical music.
