RWU Law Alum Contributes to New Edition of Important Casebook

Posted by David Logan on 01/29/2010 at 12:00 AM

Mike Daly (2002) lent a laboring oar to the new edition of a well-known casebook, Marine and Coastal Law, which is used by undergraduate, graduate, and law professors across the country.  Mike co-authored this edition with Dennis Nixon, professor of marine affairs and associate dean for research and administration at the Graduate School of Oceanography of the University of Rhode Island, and Susan Farady, director of our highly-regarded Marine Affairs Institute.  The team was ably assisted by the research efforts of 3L Jackson Parmenter.

Mike was a terrific student at RWU, clerked for the Chief Justice of the Rhode Island Supreme Court, and practices with the leading New England firm, Pierce Atwood.  He was recently elected chair of the Admiralty and Maritime Law Committee of the ABA’s Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section, while continuing to serve on the legal committee for Save the Bay, and, like Dennis and Susan, is an accomplished sailor. Here is a picture from a celebratory lunch for the authors.
