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. For many years this young man was "family" being my cousin's son. Then he decided to ignore my existence and that of my daughter who was very hurt by his actions after growing up admiring, Jason. Glad he is doing well, as for his opinion, if you care so much you wouldn't ignore the feelings of those who cared so much about you for years, Jason.

  2. Good riddance to this dangerous activist judge

  3. What is the one thing the Hoosier legal status quo hates more than a whistleblower? A lawyer whistleblower taking on the system man to man. That must never be rewarded, must always, always, always be punished, lest the whole rotten tree be felled.

  4. I want to post this to keep this tread alive and hope more of David's former clients might come forward. In my case, this coward of a man represented me from June 2014 for a couple of months before I fired him. I knew something was wrong when he blatantly lied about what he had advised me in my contentious and unfortunate divorce trial. His impact on the proceedings cast a very long shadow and continues to impact me after a lengthy 19 month divorce. I would join a class action suit.

  5. The dispute in LB Indiana regarding lake front property rights is typical of most beach communities along our Great Lakes. Simply put, communication to non owners when visiting the lakefront would be beneficial. The Great Lakes are designated navigational waters (including shorelines). The high-water mark signifies the area one is able to navigate. This means you can walk, run, skip, etc. along the shores. You can't however loiter, camp, sunbath in front of someones property. Informational signs may be helpful to owners and visitors. Our Great Lakes are a treasure that should be enjoyed by all. PS We should all be concerned that the Long Beach, Indiana community is on septic systems.
