The Folks Who Make It Happen

While the lion’s share of attention on my blog (and in the national media) is directed toward the terrific faculty we have assembled a RWU Law, our track record of successful student outcomes is the product of a team effort. Just as we have built an excellent and diverse faculty, we have built a high-performing Senior Staff. Below is a recent photo of the team (with, and without sunglasses).

Posted by Library Blog on 08/18/2010 at 12:00 AM

As part of Legal Methods I, librarians will conduct tours of the law library for incoming first-year students during the week of August 23!
