Adding Strength to Strength: New Faculty Hires

Posted by David Logan on 01/28/2011 at 02:07 PM

Susan HeymanI am very proud of the terrific faculty we have assembled at RWU Law, and this year’s hiring cycle has again yielded gold.

Next year Susan Heyman will join us to teach Business Law courses and her specialty, White Collar Crime. Susan is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor at Cardozo Law School in NYC. Susan graduated from Brandeis summa cum laude/Phi Beta Kappa, and from Cardozo Law magna cum laude/Order of the Coif, where she won the Felix Frankfurter and Samuel Belkin Awards, and served as Executive Editor of the law review.

After graduation, Susan clerked for both the Federal District Court in New Jersey and the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, and had a successful corporate practice at leading firm Debevoise & Plimpton in NY. Susan has already displayed scholarly excellence, having published “Bottoms Up: An Alternative Approach to Investigating Corporate Malfeasance” in the American Journal of Criminal Law and she has two other pieces in the pipeline. Here is a link to Susan’s webpage. Welcome aboard, Prof. Heyman.
