“I love teaching. I get pleasure from the classroom experience. Helping students maximize God-given talents keeps me young. Teaching permits me to put one foot in practice and one foot in theory. This duality is a wonderful foundation for the work in the academy.”

As a visiting professor of law at Queens University in Kingston, Ontario, Professor Griffin served as a scholar and consultant in the specialized field of international trade and sales. He was invited to observe the hearings of the Meech Lake Accord, Canada’s process for reconstructing its Constitution. His international study of law and culture has also included extended visits to Scotland, Ireland, South Africa and Japan.

Professor Griffin has published several articles including: Republicanism (Comment): How Can Blacks Revive a Constitutional DreamHill’s Account: Law School, Legal Education and the Black Law Student; and Broadcast Advertising: What Has It Done to the Audience, A Prairie Perspective on Global Warming and Climate Change.
