RWU Law has many close links to Boston. We have alums practicing law there. Retired faculty and one current faculty member reside there. Current students have externships in Boston. http://law.rwu.edu/blog/want-work-general-counsel-cvs-red-sox-gtech-laun... More specifically, Professors Yelnosky and Brown actually ran in this year’s marathon (thankfully not hurt), as did 1L Ryan McCaffery (also fine).
I just learned today that one of our 3Ls, Dan Marusak, who is back enrolled at RWU after a National Guard tour in Afghanistan, http://law.rwu.edu/blog/saluting-rwu-law-studentsoldier-veterans-day, was called up to help out with security in the homeland. Here is a picture of Dan patrolling on the T. http://www.nytimes.com/slideshow/2013/04/16/us/20130417_BOSTON-6.html?_r=1&
Like New York after 9/11, I am confident that our friends to the north will persevere in the face of this tragedy and come back stronger than ever.
We are all Bostonians now.
