Golden Dome alumnus awarded fellowship with solicitor general

University of Notre Dame Law School alumnus Greg “Ryan” Snyder is one of five recent law school graduates selected as a 2013 Bristow Fellow.

These prestigious fellowships are awarded each year to a small, select group of young attorneys. They have excellent academic records and, typically, come to the program after completing a one-year judicial clerkship, usually with a federal appellate court judge.

Bristow Fellows assist the U.S. Office of the Solicitor General attorneys in a variety of duties. These can include drafting briefs in opposition of certiorari filed against the government in the U.S. Supreme Court, preparing petitions for certiorari and briefs on the merits of Supreme Court cases, preparing recommendations to the solicitor general regarding authorization of government appeals in the lower courts, and assisting with the preparation of oral arguments in the Supreme Court.

Snyder graduated from Notre Dame in 2012. He will begin the fellowship when he finishes his current clerkship with Judge Raymond M. Kethledge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit.

IU Maurer to collaborate with 2 Brazilian schools of law

Indiana University Maurer School of Law is included in the new partnership agreements that Indiana University recently signed with leading academic institutions in Brazil. The goal is to increase foreign study opportunities for students and collaborative research possibilities for faculty in one of the world’s fastest growing economies.

The Maurer Law School is entering into a partnership with the Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV) Schools of Law in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. Faculty members from Maurer have been working closely with their colleagues at FGV for more than a year, and the schools will soon finalize an agreement for faculty exchanges. Maurer professor Christiana Ochoa, whose research focuses on human rights law, has led the effort to establish this institutional relationship.

In November, I.U. President Michael A. McRobbie made an eight-day trip to South America to sign the agreements. His itinerary included meetings with officials at the FGV law schools.•

  1. From his recent appearance on WRTV to this story here, Frank is everywhere. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, although he should stop using Eric Schnauffer for his 7th Circuit briefs. They're not THAT hard.

  2. They learn our language prior to coming here. My grandparents who came over on the boat, had to learn English and become familiarize with Americas customs and culture. They are in our land now, speak ENGLISH!!

  3. @ Rebecca D Fell, I am very sorry for your loss. I think it gives the family solace and a bit of closure to go to a road side memorial. Those that oppose them probably did not experience the loss of a child or a loved one.

  4. If it were your child that died maybe you'd be more understanding. Most of us don't have graves to visit. My son was killed on a state road and I will be putting up a memorial where he died. It gives us a sense of peace to be at the location he took his last breath. Some people should be more understanding of that.

  5. Can we please take notice of the connection between the declining state of families across the United States and the RISE OF CPS INVOLVEMENT??? They call themselves "advocates" for "children's rights", however, statistics show those children whom are taken from, even NEGLIGENT homes are LESS likely to become successful, independent adults!!! Not to mention the undeniable lack of respect and lack of responsibility of the children being raised today vs the way we were raised 20 years ago, when families still existed. I was born in 1981 and I didn't even ever hear the term "CPS", in fact, I didn't even know they existed until about ten years ago... Now our children have disagreements between friends and they actually THREATEN EACH OTHER WITH, "I'll call CPS" or "I'll have [my parent] (usually singular) call CPS"!!!! And the truth is, no parent is perfect and we all have flaws and make mistakes, but it is RIGHTFULLY OURS - BY THE CONSTITUTION OF THIS GREAT NATION - to be imperfect. Let's take a good look at what kind of parenting those that are stealing our children are doing, what kind of adults are they producing? WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENS TO THE CHILDREN THAT HAVE BEEN RIPPED FROM THEIR FAMILY AND THAT CHILD'S SUCCESS - or otherwise - AS AN ADULT.....
