Eight members of the inaugural class of TempleLaw and Public Policy Scholars were invited to present at the Mid-Atlantic Law and Society Association’s annual conference, held this past weekend at Drexel University’s Earle Mack School of Law. Andrea Anastasi, Patrick Bianchi, Erin Bramhall, Jared Burns, Christina Gilfillan, Jason Lamb, Lucas Michelen, and Sean Rust all presented either work done for credit during the course or work that grew out of that initial focus.

Dean JoAnne A. Epps remarked to the Scholars after the conference that she was “thrilled for them – delighted that they are having professional successes and coming to understand that they have much to contribute.”  She also credited Professor Nancy J. Knauer, Director of the Law and Public Policy Program, with giving the Scholars the “life gifts of knowledge, insight, and confidence” and citing their accomplishments as “proof positive of the impact of her work.”
