Defender of Public Health and Safety
One in a line of dedicated teachers, Assistant Professor Robert Steinbuch considers it a part of his public duty to testify when his expert opinion is needed in regard to the intersection between medicine and law. On the state level, he has lectured at the Arkansas Bar Association, Arkansas Federal Public Defenders, Arkansas Association of Women Lawyers, Eighth Circuit Appellate Practice Institute Symposium, Clinton School of Public Service and at many Bowen Law School events.
He has also testified before the United States Senate and House of Representatives on the relationship between public safety and advertising in relation to health care availability. Based on his expertise in government, law and medicine, Steinbuch is the only non-medical or science expert on the Board of Trustees of the Society of Chest Pain Centers, an internationally renowned organization formed to improve heart attack care. His other service contributions include authoring scholarly articles in top legal and medical journals and writing articles on pending federal legislation affecting future lawmaking.
â€śAs a first-generation American, I was taught the importance of giving back to the country that has given so much to my family,â€ť Steinbuch said. â€śThe publicâ€™s safety is of critical concern. Many companies do wonderful things; unfortunately, there are a few that donâ€™t, and those are the ones we need to look out for.â€ť
Steinbuch earned his bachelorâ€™s and masterâ€™s degrees in political science and theory from the University of Pennsylvania. He completed work on his juris doctor degree at the Columbia University School of Law, where he was recognized for presenting the best oral argument in the schoolâ€™s moot court competition. A member of the American and Arkansas Bar Associations, he served as counsel for the United States Senate Judiciary Committeeâ€™s subcommittee on antitrust, competition, policy, and consumer rights.
