Dr. Ian Banks
I am a Florida native and grew up here in the Tampa Bay area. I attended Florida State University (GO NOLES!) and obtained my undergraduate degree in English Literature in 1992. Upon graduating, I longed for a change of scenery and moved to northern Wisconsin. After a few bitterly cold years, I moved back to Florida and attended Stetson University College of Law. I graduated in 1999 with both my Juris Doctor and Masters of Business Administration. After law school, I decided to open my own firm with my best friend and worked in a practice dealing with a multitude of family law, real estate, and estate planning issues. In addition to the practice of law, I owned an insurance agency and have tutored students for the LSAT. I have been an adjunct professor here at SPC since 2008 and became a full time instructor in 2013. I am excited to bring my practical and versatile experience and pass it on to my students. I believe that teaching is an interactive experience in which students learn by participation and discussion.
