Professor Mary Holper

The national media is once again turning to RWU Law for their expertise, and on a remarkably broad array of topics.  Mary Holper, the dynamic Director of our Immigration Law Clinic was spotlighted in the Washington Post, where she discussed a controversial recent decision of the Virginia Supreme Court that undercuts a pro-immigration decision by the United States Supreme Court last year. CNN.com published an op-ed penned (typed?) by one of our faculty veterans, Carl Bogus, on the hot button issue of gun control, while another leading electronic source, Slate, turned to the deeply knowledgable head of our Marine Affairs Institute, Susan Farady, for a response to President Obama’s sarcastic comments on salmon regulation in his State of the Union Address.  Finally, and a bit further afield, Associate Professor Michael Burger was quoted in Bloomberg News on his beloved New York Jets (a potentially dangerous move up here in the Red Sox Nation).
