Terry Halbert is Professor of Legal Studies at Temple University's Fox School of Business & Management. Her research and teaching is interdisciplinary, focusing on business ethics and public policy concerns. Professor Halbert has developed industry-specific courses on the tobacco industry and on gambling in which students take up each issue from several perspectives: history, sociology, law, ethics, economics, race/class/gender, literature, and film. She has served as a staff editor for the AMERICAN BUSINESS LAW JOURNAL since 1995 and is a member of the Pennsylvania Bar. In 1999, she received Temple's Great Teacher award. A believer in experiential learning, Professor Halbert teaches an Executive MBA course in which managers discuss and analyze the ethical dilemmas they face at work. She earned her JD from Rutgers University, Camden.
