Western New England University School of Law
Volunteer Honor Roll
The annual Volunteer Honor Roll recognizes the hundreds of people who donate their time and talent
to enrich the law school experience for our students without seeking remuneration in return. As always,
I am deeply appreciative of the many people—alumni, non-alumni, lawyers, judges, and others—who
share their time and experience to make the School of Law a dynamic and vibrant learning community.
Simply put, we could not run the first-year moot court, prepare competition teams, offer externship experiences, hold informative panels, or enrich courses with guest lecturers without the generous donation of time from numerous volunteers. Because
our school is devoted to student-centered professional education, finding ways to integrate the profession into the program is a
high priority. While we rely on our excellent adjunct faculty to bring the world of law practice into the classroom, we also rely on
the efforts of volunteers in many varied ways.
As this list shows, the involvement of the School of Law with the Bar and the Bar with the School of Law is very robust.
While the list is impressive, I know I am running the risk of leaving some volunteers off the list by accident. For example, I
realized far too late that I forgot to ask the adjunct faculty to let me know the guest lecturers they had in their classes. I apologize
for the oversight. I am sure I missed other volunteers here and there. If you know of a name that should be on the list, please
let me know and I will publish an addendum in the next issue of Perspectives.
To all the people on this Volunteer Honor Roll: Thank you very much—we cannot do it without you.
Eric J. Gouvin, Professor and Dean
