UNC School of Law is pleased to welcome Anna “Annie” Scardulla to the faculty July 1 as clinical assistant professor in The Writing and Learning Resources Center (WLRC). She teaches Research, Reasoning, Writing, and Advocacy.

“I’m delighted to welcome Professor Scardulla to our program,” says Craig Smith, assistant dean for the WLRC and clinical professor of law. “She complements our outstanding team by bringing creativity, superb rapport with students, and award-winning teaching experience.”

Scardulla joins the school from Louisiana State University Paul M. Hebert Law Center in Baton Rouge, La., where she served as advocacy teaching fellow for three years. Scardulla was voted “LSU Law Professor of the Year” by students due to her work with them building trial advocacy skills, coaching moot court teams and mentoring students through the “Fit to Practice” civil litigation workshop series she created. Prior to joining the LSU Law faculty, Scardulla practiced law for three years in Louisiana, primarily in product liability cases. Scardulla earned her J.D. from LSU and her bachelor’s degree from Saint Louis University.

“I have long followed the WLRC faculty’s contributions to the legal writing discipline, so the opportunity to join this incredible team is a dream come true,” Scardulla says. “Looking to the start of the semester, I am most excited to get to know the students, build connections, and experience what makes UNC Law such a special place.”
