Christine Cerniglia Brown

Chrissy is the Coordinator of Skills and Experiential Learning at Loyola College of Law. Currently, she oversees and coordinates skills courses offered through Loyola’s unique Skills Curriculum. She also oversees Loyola’s expanding externship program and teaches the general skills seminar course every semester. In addition, she enthusiastically assists with faculty innovation to design experiential modules.  Her enthusiasm for experiential education is founded upon her own practice experience.

Throughout her career, she received incredible mentoring through an apprenticeship style of learning including her years of practice while at Sharp Henry Cerniglia and Florida’s Sixth Judicial Circuit. She is licensed in both Florida and Louisiana. Her professional roots are founded upon traditional principles of apprenticeship and her current passion is to help bridge the gap in law school between theory and practice. Her mission is to continue to innovate and foster a dialogue on methods to assist law students with learning and to find more pathways to collaborate among academics and practitioners.  

Beyond work, Chrissy is an avid gardener, festival and travel enthusiast and enjoys spending time with her husband and two dogs.
