CUA Law E-newsletter - June 2014
Dean Designate Daniel F. Attridge
A letter from Dean Daniel F. Attridge:

Dear CUA Law Alumni, Family, and Friends,

June and July are relatively quiet months in our academic cycle.  We’ve finished the 2013-14 academic year, and preparations are underway for the 2014-15 year.  Although some summer session classes are being held – on campus as well as in Rome and Cracow – most students are focused on their summer jobs while our faculty turn their attention to summer research and writing projects.  Hopefully, everyone will make some time for vacation (as I just did) before our busy schedule of classes resumes in mid-August.  This is a brief report on what’s been happening and what’s coming up:


1. Scholarship at CUA Law.  In early April, we moved our legal scholarship to the readily accessible world of digital online publishing, and the response has been very positive. Our new online repository, called Scholarship at CUA Law and available at, includes our own law journals: the Catholic University Law Review, CommLaw Conspectus: Journal of Communications Law and Technology Policy, and the Journal of Contemporary Health Law and Policy.      Read more here

CUA Law Professor and Recent Alumnus Help Secure Supreme Court Victory

Catholic University law school Professor Robert Destro, working with recent alumnus Austin Lipari, 2013, helped lead the Susan B. Anthony List, a pro-life advocacy organization, to a unanimous victory at the United States Supreme Court on June 16. Susan B. Anthony List v. Driehaus is a challenge to Ohio laws that make it a crime for any person to “[m]ake a false statement concerning the voting record of a candidate or public official” or to “[p]ost, publish, circulate, distribute, or otherwise disseminate a false statement concerning a candidate, either knowing [it] to be false or with reckless disregard” for the truth.
