Evan Goyke is a graduate of St. John's University (Minnesota), where he received a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science in 2005. Mr. Goyke graduated from Marquette University Law School, receiving his Juris Doctor in 2009. During his career at Marquette, Mr. Goyke was dedicated in his second and third years to participating in the Milwaukee Street Law Project, which he now co-teaches.
As an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Marquette University Law School, Mr. Goyke works alongside Professor Notesong S. Thompson in the Milwaukee Street Law Project. They teach Marquette second and third year law students in a weekly seminar. The law students in the seminar then go on to teach a yearlong introduction to law course at local high schools. Law students cover a variety of substantive legal topics in their high school classes including family, housing, civil, criminal, and tort law. The culminating event each year is a citywide mock trial competition. Through this opportunity law students are able use their substantive legal knowledge, gain inroads into the greater Milwaukee community, and use practical legal skills such as public speaking, research, and case analysis.
In addition to serving as an Assistant Adjunct Professor, Mr. Goyke is an attorney in the Milwaukee trial office of the State Public Defender. Mr. Goyke devotes much of his free time to community service, including volunteering as a mentor for the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Milwaukee.
