Regent Law In the News: Alum Named District Court Judge, Professors Win Writing Award And Appear On MSNBC.COM


Some employers are using the recession as an excuse to tighten up ship, reports Eve Tahmincioglu in an April 13, 2009 article at msnbc.com. In her analysis of this claim, Tahmincioglu consulted and cited Regent Law Professor and Civil Litigation Clinic Director Kathleen McKee.


On April 14, 2009, Professor Thomas C. Folsom’s article, "Space Pirates, Hitchhikers, Guides, and the Public Interest: Transformational Trademark Law in Cyberspace," was selected as the winner of the 2009 Ladas Memorial Award for writing excellence on the subject of trademarks and related matters.

The writing contest is sponsored by the International Trademark Association (INTA) and the law firm of Ladas & Parry. INTA commended Folsom on joining “a small but distinguished group whose scholarship has contributed to the field of trademarks and enhanced the understanding of this discipline.”


Regent Law alumnus and capital defender for Virginia’s Southeastern District, Joseph A. Migliozzi, has been appointed to the Norfolk General District Court bench.
