Law Faculty a Valuable Resource for Media

Although school is out for the summer, the College of Law faculty has continued to serve as an important resource for local and national media outlets, which have come to rely on the College of Law’s wealth of expertise. From May to July, the law faculty was quoted in the news more than a dozen times.
