"The lawyer's role is to make the best argument. If the client loses at the trial level, the process continues until it reaches the highest court. This is where change in the law is made. The study of law is the study of an amazingly powerful profession. In my opinion, lawyers are the agents of change."

Professor Kaye is an experienced public defender, was in private practice in California and studied at the Comparative Law Institute in Grenoble, France. He was a Visiting Professor of Law at Whittier College School of Law in 1990-91.

Professor Kaye is admitted to practice in California, Kansas, the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit and the United States District Court for the District of Kansas.
