Chapman University Dale E. Fowler School of Law students Ray Gennawey (JD ‘14) and Steven Cometa (JD ‘14) were in Washington, DC the week of April 7, 2014 with the American Bar Association (ABA). Cometa is the Vice Chair of the ABA Law Student Division and Gennawey is a Division Delegate of the ABA Law Student Division. They met with legislators to advocate an increase of federal funding for legal aid and oppose specific tax proposals that are harmful to law firms. They are pictured below with Senator Dianne Feinstein.
Gennawey and Cometa, members of Professor Celestine McConville’s Constitutional Law “varsity squad,” flex in front of the Supreme Court of the United States in their “McCon Law” jerseys. The shirts were a surprise from the students for Professor McConville in her spring 2014 Federal Courts class. Professor McConville referred to the students in this upper level course as members of her varsity team.
