Students Excel Trying Case Before Leading RI Judge

Posted by David Logan on 12/06/2013 at 11:43 AM

One of the great opportunities for RWU Law students is their chance to develop lawyering skills under the close watch of leading trial judges. This year is no exception as Superior Court Justice Stephen Nugent presided over the final trial at the end of a semester of instruction from fellow Justice Dan Procaccini, in his courtroom! 3Ls Leticia Tavares, Angelo Catanzariti, Sharlene Rossi, and Marcus Swift were the student advocates. Judge P’s bottom line: “Both Justice Nugent and I were very impressed with the professionalism, preparation and passion displayed by these students. They are a great reflection on the law school.”

Congratulations to our terrific students who are lucky to learn from the very best the legal profession has to offer. Below is a picture of the proud students, and if you are wondering why the mailbox, well, according to Judge P it “was a simple, powerful demonstrative device that conveyed the essence of the case.”
