Law Library Computer Lab Assistants!

Posted by Library Blog on 10/16/2008 at 12:00 AM

The Law Library employs students to assist with computer-related problems.  They can answer basic questions about wordprocessing, email, electronic databases, and Internet.  They can assist with printing problems in the computer labs.  Look for the photo at the Circulation Desk indicating the Computer Lab Assistant who is on duty.  In order to better acquaint you with our Computer Lab Assistant, here is a brief bio about each one!

Third-year student Dan Caswell is from Stonington, Connecticut.  He graduated from the University of Connecticut at Storrs where he majored in Political Science and Sociology and minored in Human Rights. His areas of interests are criminal law and international law. As Daniel has wanted to be a lawyer since he was a kid, he says that he is now “living the dream” in attending law school.  This past summer, he was a clerk in the Los Angeles County Public Defenders’ Office.

Third-year student Jeff George is from Prospect, Connecticut. He attended the University of South Carolina in Columbia, S.C. and has a B.S. in Criminal Justice.  Jeff’s areas of interest are environmental law and criminal law.

Second-year student Andrew Gould is from Danvers, Massachusetts.  He attended Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Connecticut where he studied and earned a degree in Economics.  Andrew is interested in learning more about business law and is currently taking business law electives such as Business Organizations, Payment Systems and Labor Law.  He hopes to be able to use the skills acquired at the R.W.U. School of Law to find a job in one of the many different fields of business law.

Third-year student Benjamin Lemcke is from Albion, New York.  He is a graduate of Gordon College in Wenham, Massachusetts and received his Master’s in Criminal Justice from Niagara University in New York.  Ben worked as a probation officer between graduating from college and attending graduate school. His activities include participation in the Criminal Defense Clinic, the Honor Board and Trial Team.  Ben wants to be a criminal trial attorney.

Third-year student Kenny Milord is from Queens, New York.  He has a B.A. in Criminal Justice and a Minor in Economics from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey.  Prior to coming to law school, Kenny worked as a Direct Support Professional for the Association for the Help of Retarded Children in Nassau County.  Kenny, along with other staff members, assisted the clients with their day- to -day life choices, exercise independence and develop responsibilities.  Attending law school and graduating with a J.D. degree has always been his ultimate career goal.  In his spare time, he enjoy going to the movies, especially to watch action movies.

Third-year student Ashley Parker is from South Windsor, Connecticut.  She has a degree in Political Science and minors in Psychology and Italian from Roger Williams University. While attending R.W.U., she worked with Laurie Barron and Liz Tobin-Tyler in the Feinstein Institute for Legal Service. She has also worked for UTC Power in Connecticut as a legal intern and for the Rhode Island Office of the Child Advocate.

Third-year student Diane Stewart is from Middleboro, Massachusetts.  She has a B.A. in Russian Language & Literature from Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts.  Diane came to law school so she could be an advocate for people who can’t afford lawyers. During spring break of her senior year at Wheaton College, she participated in an urban mission project in Providence where her group slept in a church basement and volunteered at a variety of organizations geared toward helping those struggling to live at or below the poverty level.  Diane was amazed at the number of available social services and how a simple phone call from a lawyer to a landlord or employer accomplished what the clients couldn’t do themselves with weeks of phone calls or visits.  Last summer, Diane attended a six week international human rights law program in Strasbourg, France.  She currently runs a youth group in her home town.
