RWU Law Alums Teaching Other Lawyers

Posted by David Logan on 09/13/2013 at 12:30 PM

As a young law school, it is especially gratifying to see how our graduates are making their mark in the profession.  One measure of this evolution is how many of our alums write for the Rhode Island Bar Journal, the official publication of the RI Bar Association, and the most recent issue has a whopping three articles from RWU Law grads.

Pot or Not: State or Federal Government Regulation and (De) Criminalization of Marijuana?” (by Katherine Godin‘08)

Cold War Cancer: Texas Instruments and the Energy Employees Compensation Program,” (by Jenna Wims Hashway’11)

Lunch with Legends,”  (by Matt Plain’05 with Elizabeth Merrit)

This is on top of alum Stephen Sypole winning the Bar Association’s Lauren E. Jones Writing Award this past year.  Stephen’s piece was entitled “Modernizing Rhode Island's Premises Liability Laws.”

Congratulations to Kate, Jenna, Matt and Stephen!
