Rhode Island Bar Journal Features Two RWU Law Student Authors (and one alum!)

Posted by Library Blog on 03/14/2011 at 09:40 AM

Imagine if you were sitting alone in your apartment and a man began banging on your door and calling your name. He then demands you give him your 42" plasma TV for free because you promised it to him in an ad on Craigslist that you don’t know anything about. What would you do?

This fact pattern is similar to an actual Rhode Island case as discussed in the March/April, 2011 issue of the Rhode Island Bar Journal.  The article, Cyberbullying - An Age Old Problem, a New Generation, is co-written by the Honorable Brian P. Stern, Esq. and Roger Williams University School of Law student Thomas Evans.

The same issue of the Rhode Island Bar Journal features an article about the hazards of so-called litigation financing companies.  The article, Litigation Financing: Preying on Plaintiffs, is co-written by John P. Barylick, Esq. and Jenna Wims Hashway, a Roger Williams University School of Law student and RWU School of Law Review Editor-in-Chief.

In addition, the March/April issue of the Rhode Island Bar Journal also features Cyber Crimes: Bullying, Stalking, Sexting & Texting by Robert H. Humphrey, Esq. and Kimberly A. Petta, Esq. (Class of ‘09).
