Alum Tackles Judicial Selection

Posted by David Logan on 03/19/2012 at 12:27 PM

It was clear, even as a 1L, that Maureen Wagner '10 was going to be an alum to watch. Deeply - and proudly - conservative, Maureen helped the RWU Law chapter of the Federalist Society bring remarkable speakers to campus.  Now, as Deputy Director of the Federalist Society in Washington, D.C., she is spearheading her organization’s effort to raise the profile of the issue of judicial selection at the state level and educate the public on what is in many states (and the federal government, not to mention Rhode Island) the “least democratic branch.”  Now her major project is up and running, a website that comprehensively, and in a user-friendly way, tracks the issue in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.  It was even featured on the top blog, the Volokh Conspiracy.

Congratulations Maureen!
