Law's Not-So-Dirty Little Secret — A Liberal Arts Education: Don Puckett & Paul Skiermont

University of Kentucky alumni Don Puckett and Paul Skiermont are not engineers and don't have science backgrounds (unless their Political Science degrees count). That, however, has not stopped them from joining together as lawyers specializing in highly technical patent litigation. 
 
According to Puckett and Skiermont, the secret to their success was a liberal arts education from UK's College of Arts & Sciences.
 
In this podcast, Puckett and Skiermont discuss their time at UK, their work together as lawyers, and how their time on the competitive debate team prepared them for future fights.

Opening New Doors: Debdas Mukerjee

University of Kentucky alumni Debdas Mukerjee graduated in 1962 with his Ph.D. in genetics. After UK, Mukerjee contributed his expertise to the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center before his career finally carried him to the Environmental Protection Agency where he was a Senior Environmental Health Scientist for the United States. 

All of this was not Mukerjee's plan but he found that both the University of Kentucky and the state itself opened the doors of America to him in way he would never have imagined. In this podcast, Mukerjee reminisces on his "innumerable" memories at UK and gives some advice to current students so that they too can get the most from their academic experience.
