Adjunct Professor Rex Frazier, '00, presented the McGeorge Capital Lawyering Concentration at the 5th Colonial Frontier" Legal Writing Conference held Dec. 3, 2016 at Duquesne University School of Law in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  Professor Frazier's paper will be published in the Summer 2017 Symposium Issue of the Duquesne Law Review.

Professor Frazier teaches two courses at McGeorge. "California Lobbying and Politics" focuses on the deliberative and non-deliberative factors which influence California state lawmaking. The course includes a simulated legislative hearing in the State Capitol to develop written and oral legislative advocacy skills.

Professor Frazier also created and supervises the McGeorge Legislative & Public Policy Clinic.  In this year-long course, students develop proposals to change California law and then seek passage or implementation. The clinic has been recognized as one of the country's most innovative. The Clinic enjoyed great results this year, with five of the six bills that the students worked on signed by Governor Brown.

In his "day job," Professor Frazier serves as President of the Personal Insurance Federation of California. He represents PIFC's member companies before the California State government and provides advice on legislative, regulatory, litigation and political matters. He has served in a variety of state and political positions and is regularly recognized in Capitol Weekly's "Top 100" list of most influential individuals in California politics.
