The Power of a Suit

Posted by Heather O'Connor on 10/29/2010 at 09:37 PM

I’m in court a lot lately with the criminal defense clinic, so suits have been my almost every day attire. Since I’m wearing them more, I am beginning to notice the difference in the way people treat you when you have a suit on compared to when you don’t. Well, maybe I shouldn’t say “you” since this is really my own experience, so I should say that I get treated differently depending on whether I wear a suit or whether I have jeans and a t-shirt on.

Fall in Rhode Island

Posted by Melanie Shapiro on 10/18/2010 at 08:53 AM

It’s been a while since I last wrote a blog, and what better time then the end of a long Sunday of work when I’m too tired to keep reading, but not to blog?  Second year sure is busy, but I’m enjoying it all!  This year you can choose some electives.  The required courses for the fall are Constitutional Law and Evidence.  My electives are Immigration, Legislative Drafting and Wills & Trusts.  I find the substance of these courses pretty interesting and I feel lucky to have such top-notch engaging faculty teaching me.

Our Appellate Courtroom was the scene of a debate among the candidates for Rhode Island Attorney General, and it was a doozy.  Peppered with questions from a panel consisting of media legend Jim Taricani, ProJo columnist Ed Fitzpatrick, and our own Prof.

North Dakota: In an attempt to rob a bank, a man scribbled his ransom note and gave it to the teller. The teller quickly gave him the money and watched him run out the door. Attempts to search the surrounding area were unsuccessful, but upon review of the ransom note, it was revealed that the man wrote the demand on the back of his personal bank deposit note. Police traveled to the man's home and arrested him while he was counting the cash.
