Professor Dale Moore remembers begging for a chalkboard at six years old so she could play “teacher.” She didn’t know that role would eventually lead to 33 years of teaching in a law-school classroom. She learned early that she loved being a student, and had a hunch somewhere during nursing school, college, and law school that she wanted to stay in a learning environment.

“The enthusiasm never fades, nor do the challenges,” she said. “Each class has its own personality, which brings fresh excitement and new opportunities every semester.”

Moore served many roles at Albany Law School, including associate dean of student affairs, associate dean of academic affairs, acting dean, chair of the Admissions and Faculty Affairs Committees, and her “favorite by far,” professor of law. She received the 2008 Distinguished Educator for Excellence in Teaching Award. Although she taught numerous courses over the years, most recently she has taught Federal Civil Procedure, Products Liability, and Torts. She also served as an adjunct professor at Albany Medical College and as the founding editor of the N.Y. State Bar Association’s Health Law Journal.

Her scholarship is centered primarily on health-care law and torts.
