As a lawyer, Judge Coates taught business law at City College, and in 1981, the USD Dean asked him to assemble and to teach a new course (now, a standard) called, "Environmental Law". The Dean then asked him to create an ongoing "Enviornmental and Natural Resources Forum", which Judge Coates did and directed it for four years, featuring Speakers of national repute. In 1995, Judge Coates was asked to create and to teach a course in "Poverty Law" at the now Thomas Jefferson School of Law.
Judge Coates intends to re-activate himself in the Law Teachers Section of the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation, with the thought of again, teaching law.
