About David Clements
Professor Clements received his Juris Doctorate from the University of New Mexico School of Law in 2010. He currently teaches Legal Environment of Business and Consumers and the Law. His teaching style draws heavily from his experience as a seasoned trial attorney, where he tried over 120 cases to a jury and dozens more to a judge. His experience ranges from municipal defense in civil litigation, to prosecution of 1st-degree murder and other high-profile felony cases. Professor Clements joins our faculty full-time after serving as a visiting professor this past calendar year.
When Professor Clements is not serving the needs of his students, he maintains his ties to the legal profession as an of counsel attorney with the law firm of Holt Mynatt Martinez P.C. There he focuses on commercial law, municipal and county defense, and employment law. His academic and research interests include the collateral source rule, liquor license reform, SLAPP lawsuits, and the legal aspects of propaganda in the entertainment industry.
