Law Reviews from Across the Country Gather at RWU Law

Posted by David Logan on 04/11/2012 at 08:52 AM

RWU was honored to host the Annual Meeting of the National Conference of Law Reviews, which brought almost 300 of the brightest law students from around the country to RI for 3 days of networking, discussing how to adapt publications to the digital age, and topics like whether it is advantageous to have a “local law” issue. Check out the Conference Program
The attendees were treated to keynote addresses by terrific members of the RWU Law family, Betty Anne Waters’98 and Adjunct Professor Don Migliori, plus presentations by faculty members Zoe Argento, Jared Goldstein, Tony Bastone, Kim Baker, Colleen Brown, Ellen Saideman, Kathy Thompson, Raquel Ortiz, and alums Becky Aitchison’11, Nicole Benjamin’06, Michael Field’97, Timothy Groves’06, Jenna Hashway’11, Sally McDonald’09, Jessica Shelton’11, and Margreta Vellucci’07. The leadership of our Law Review did a terrific job pulling off a major event, so a tip of the hat to Timothy Grimes, Adam Riser, Amy Goins, Elizabeth Hartley, and Jamie Johnson, plus others on the journal too numerous to name who also put their shoulders to the wheel.
