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.
