Terrence Cain is the associate dean for faculty development at the Bowen School of Law. His teaching is centered around creating better leaders, and he advocates for solutions to current issues that plague our community.
Cain has volunteered his time with the Bowen School of Law Legal Education Advancement Project (LEAP), created to identify individuals from historically underrepresented populations who have leadership potential to finish law school and pass the bar examination.
Students who participate in LEAP are assigned a faculty advisor, engaged in collaborative exercises, and required to enroll in a non-credit course that necessitates considerable in-class and out-of-class work. Most students LEAP participants admitted to law school perform as well as or better than their non-LEAP peers.
Professor Cain has also used his experience as a solo appellate practitioner to serve the public through the Supreme Court of Arkansas’ Appeals on Wheels outreach program. Twice each year, the court travels across the state to hold oral arguments. Dr. Cain’s presentation during the proceedings is witnessed by students in middle school up to the college level demonstrating service leadership through the practice of law.
Cain received his Juris Doctor with honors from the William H. Bowen School of Law and a B.S. in Business Administration from the University of Arkansas.
