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. Im very happy for you, getting ready to go down that dirt road myself, and im praying for the same outcome, because it IS sometimes in the childs best interest to have visitation with grandparents. Thanks for sharing, needed to hear some positive posts for once.

  2. Been there 4 months with 1 paycheck what can i do

  3. our hoa has not communicated any thing that takes place in their "executive meetings" not executive session. They make decisions in these meetings, do not have an agenda, do not notify association memebers and do not keep general meetings minutes. They do not communicate info of any kind to the member, except annual meeting, nobody attends or votes because they think the board is self serving. They keep a deposit fee from club house rental for inspection after someone uses it, there is no inspection I know becausee I rented it, they did not disclose to members that board memebers would be keeping this money, I know it is only 10 dollars but still it is not their money, they hire from within the board for paid positions, no advertising and no request for bids from anyone else, I atteended last annual meeting, went into executive session to elect officers in that session the president brought up the motion to give the secretary a raise of course they all agreed they hired her in, then the minutes stated that a diffeerent board member motioned to give this raise. This board is very clickish and has done things anyway they pleased for over 5 years, what recourse to members have to make changes in the boards conduct

  4. Where may I find an attorney working Pro Bono? Many issues with divorce, my Disability, distribution of IRA's, property, money's and pressured into agreement by my attorney. Leaving me far less than 5% of all after 15 years of marriage. No money to appeal, disabled living on disability income. Attorney's decision brought forward to judge, no evidence ever to finalize divorce. Just 2 weeks ago. Please help.

  5. For the record no one could answer the equal protection / substantive due process challenge I issued in the first post below. The lawless and accountable only to power bureaucrats never did either. All who interface with the Indiana law examiners or JLAP be warned.
