DAVID RUDOVSKY TEACHES part-time but with full-time commitment. That is why, at graduation, he received the Harvey Levin Award from the Class of 2004. “It is an award that I really do cherish because it’s from the students,” says Rudovsky.

Being named the best teacher is all the more remarkable given that Rudovsky spends half of his worklife teaching and half running a private practice – and neither suffers. How does he manage to do double duty?

Basically, he relies on the mercy of the court. A partner in the public service law firm of Kairys, Rudovsky, Epstein & Messing, Rudovsky says judges usually accommodate him by scheduling trials (at least those involving civil cases) when he is not teaching, though sometimes he has had to rush from Law School to court.

Rudovsky has maintained this professional split personality for 17 years. The faculty’s only Senior Fellow, Rudovsky taught trial advocacy as an instructor for a number of years. However, he wanted to do more teaching, so he approached the administration and worked out an arrangement, in 1988, in which he teaches one course – either evidence, criminal procedure or criminal law – per semester.
