Professor Cathren Page joined the faculty at the Barry University School of Law in 2011. She previously taught Appellate Advocacy, Legal Research and Writing, and Special Problems in Evidence for three years at Golden Gate University School of Law. She is an active participant in the Legal Writing Institute and an assistant editor with the Journal of the Legal Writing Institute. Prior to entering academia, Professor Page practiced law as a staff attorney in the Department of Protective and Regulatory Services in Texas where she established an 89 percent win record in the Texas Courts of Appeals and successfully represented her agency before the Supreme Court of Texas. During that time, she also held a 100 percent win record at trial. Professor Page was active in the legal community in Texas and was awarded both an American Bar Association Award and a Texas Young Lawyers Award for the pro bono Family Law pamphlet she created. She hosted quarterly on Austin Young Lawyer’s Association’s “Ask an Attorney” television show, spoke at conferences, and published papers on Child Protection Law, one of which has been cited by the El Paso Court of Appeals. In addition to her JD degree from the University of Texas, Professor Page earned an MFA degree in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College. Her current legal scholarship focuses on Applied Legal Storytelling, and she is a frequent speaker on this topic. Her upcoming article titled “A Look Inside the Butler’s Cupboard: How the External World Reveals Internal State of Mind in Legal Narratives,” is being published in NYU Annual Survey of American Law.
