Color of Law Opens New Semester of Speakers

Posted January 26, 2010

The Color of Law Roundtable Discussion Series kicked off a new semester of speakers with Relations Specialist at the Executive Office of Health and Human Services Cynthia Tucker '86. Tucker's discussion, which took place on January 25 in the Blake Law Center, focused on guiding law students through their time remaining at Western New England College and beyond.


Focusing on the path that students have chosen as they find themselves in the midst of studying law, Tucker reminded them how “any time you can get in a professional field such as a law, that really impacts everything we do in life, and your in there, you are a privileged few. So congratulations to each of you.” She went on reminding students to “think about the importance of what you do because we impact lives. We impact how this country runs and ultimately in the United States, we influence how the world operates.”

The next Color of Law speaker will be Julian Tynes, assistant general counsel/labor at the Department of Developmental Services. Tynes will speak on February 22 at the Blake Law Center.
