Prior to his legal education, Professor Singleton held a variety of administrative positions at the university level. Before returning to Indiana Law as a clinical professor, Singleton practiced privately, specializing in litigation. In 1989 he joined the Indiana Law community as supervising attorney of the Community Legal Clinic and in 1991 was appointed the director of Legal Services.
Singleton currently supervises and evaluates the performance of the legal interns, and administers the operation of the Community Legal Clinic. Through the clinic, third-year students have the opportunity to sharpen and develop skills while representing clients under the Indiana Student Practice Rule. In this professional setting, students are introduced to client interviewing and counseling, fact investigation, drafting, negotiating, trial techniques, and preparing for and conducting trials and administrative hearings.
A member of the Indiana and Michigan bars, Mr. Singleton is an active participant at state and national law conferences.
