CalSouthern Faculty Mentors

CalSouthern’s faculty mentors are talented, highly credentialed educators who are also experienced practitioners in the subject areas in which they teach—and they use that practical experience to help learners apply the concepts they learn to current, real-world issues.

A common misconception about online learning is that it is impersonal, that learners are on their own. At CalSouthern, that could not be further from the truth. Faculty mentors get to know their students and provide one-on-one, personalized feedback on their assignments. They are also available by email, phone or Skype to answer their questions or provide any additional support or guidance they might need.

Christine Greene, JD

Faculty Mentor, Law

Areas of Interest and Expertise
Family law, civil litigation, legal research, legal writing, immigration

Christine Greene currently practices domestic relations law and is experienced in immigration, civil litigation and post-conviction law. She has represented clients before the D.C. Superior Court, the Court of Appeals of Maryland and the U.S. District Court of Maryland.

As a consultant for the American Bar Association, Christine surveyed U.S. public defense attorneys to identify current comprehensive pretrial practices and, based on the results of her survey, created a toolkit which will provide a baseline reference point and resource guide for pretrial public defenders. This toolkit is published on the American Bar Association's website and will be administered to defense attorneys nationally to aid in improving the quality of pretrial representation for defendants nationwide.

Christine is a passionate family advocate with a solid record of winning positive results for her clients--many of whom are traditionally underrepresented in the court system. Christine served on the board of the Rappahannock Council for Children and Parents, a nonprofit organization that promotes positive parenting and the prevention of child abuse and neglect.

Christine earned her BA in psychology from the University of Virginia and her JD from the Washington and Lee University School of Law. She co-authored the article, “African American Family Life: The Dynamics of Interactions, Relationships, and Roles,” which is published in New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development 1995:68, 5. Christine is licensed to practice in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and the U.S. District Court District of Maryland.
