Professor Galves lectures widely on the use of technology in the practice of law, including the use of 3D computer animations and virtual reality exhibits. His use of technology in teaching and his computer-assisted litigation course has inspired several universities to recruit Professor Galves as a visiting professor. He has taught at the University of California at Davis School of Law, Fordham Law School, the University of Denver Law School and Southwestern University Law School. He also teaches as a visitor in the Political Science Department at Colorado College. He currently teaches at Lincoln Law School and Drivon Law School.
Professor Galves also teaches several international courses to Americans and foreigners. He has taught Trial Advocacy in Chile and China, private international litigation in Austria, alternative dispute resolution in Germany, and for many years taught U.S. Securities Law as well as USA Legal Orientation to foreign attorneys and judges enrolled in the U.C. Davis Law Orientation International Program.
At Pacific McGeorge, Professor Galves taught Civil Procedure, Evidence, and Computer-Assisted Litigation. He also administered the Street Law International Program in conjunction with Sacramento Charter High School, Florin High and McClatchy High – a program in which law students teach legal concepts and trial advocacy to inner city teenagers. He continues to teach that course at Lincoln Law School at Florin High School, Luther Burbank High School and Hiram Johnson law School in Sacramento.
Following graduation from Harvard Law School in 1986, Galves served as a judicial clerk for Judge John L. Kane (U.S. District Court, District of Colorado).
