At the 2007 Workshop of the National Institute for Teaching Ethics & Professionalism (, as part of a series of teaching demonstrations on "What Can Be Done in One Hour," Dean Bilek demonstrated an exercise that is part of CUNY's first year orientation. She divided the workshop participants into small groups and gave them the assignment of forming their own law firm. They had to choose a firm name, practice area, motto, and compose a short radio advertisement. Each group then performed their radio spot.
