Review Peter Berge

About Me

I am the Web Education Director for Minnesota Continuing Legal Education.  I have previously taught at William Mitchell College of Law, Temple University School of Law, and the Georgetown Law Center.  When I was actively practicing, the majority of my practice was representing injured plaintiffs.  In the course of that work, I handled numerous appeals.  I also represented lawyers against whom ethics charges had been brought.  My first jobs out of law school were clerking for the Minnesota Court of Appeals and the Minnesota Supreme Court.
