    Cheers to 50 Years: Larry Grassini ’70 on Law & Wine

    When Larry Grassini ’70 entered the Law School in the fall of 1967, his torts professor was the revered Dean Vernon X. Miller who, in addition to concluding his tenure as Dean, was also the author of a well-used textbook on torts. While Grassini has practiced tort trial law for the last 50 years, the foremost tenet he took from the Dean was that “the way you practice law and your reputation will always be your most treasured asset.” Under Dean Miller’s stewardship, students operated under a written honor code, one that valued truth and integrity in all areas of law practice. The Law School supported this system by having no professors or proctors during exams. Classmates were partners in learning, not competitors. Grassini took the Dean’s advice to heart and for the last 50 years has been committed to dealing with other lawyers, judges, and clients consistent with the philosophy he learned so many years ago.

    Student Spotlight: Meet Third-Year Law Student Svantje Swider

    Is it ever too late to pivot your career trajectory? That is the question Catholic Law third-year student Svantje Swider asked herself when she was considering leaving an eight-year career at the Department of Defense to pursue her JD. Swider shared, “I had thought that I really wanted to do National Security and I did enjoy a lot of aspects of working in National Security as a field, but you don’t really know what it’s going to be like until you get there.” She continued, “A couple of years in, I realized that I wanted to do something else long-term for a career.” Many of Swider’s college friends, who like her had studied foreign affairs during their undergraduate studies, had gone straight to law school, so the less traditional path that lay before her felt somewhat daunting. Luckily, around the same time, Swider’s younger brother was beginning his JD as an “older than average law student.” With his experience and support, Swider felt confident in her decision to take the plunge. Now, as her time at Catholic Law is drawing to a close, Swider took an opportunity to reflect on her law school experience.

It was about pursuing her passions and finding the “right fit” for her; putting her JD to use in a less traditional way.

  • Brendan T. Carr

    Meet a 2020 Distinguished Recent Alumni Award Recipient Commissioner Brendan T. Carr ’05

    “When opportunity knocks, most people don’t have their bags packed.” This is the advice Commissioner Brendan T. Carr ’05 heard during his time in law school, from then-Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Michael Powell. These words have shaped Carr’s career, and it is the advice he often shares with law students and young lawyers today. For Carr, who’s held a number of positions in both the public and private sectors—including his current role as a commissioner at the FCC—change can be daunting. “Every time I had the chance to move into a new role, I could come up with a number of reasons why it was not the exact right time to make a change. It was always tempting to just stay put—it was comfortable, I knew the people, I could do the work.” However, Carr’s willingness to leave his comfort zone has provided him with a stream of wonderful opportunities throughout his career.

Hannon had enjoyed teaching and coaching high-caliber swimmers, but after returning to high school teaching post master’s degree, “he became restless with the education bureaucracy […and] concluded that the modern public school system was no longer in the business of education.” It was then that he decided that his next step would be to go to law school.

Unfortunately, I was not knowledgeable enough to be able to do the kind of thorough analysis of pending legal issues necessary to do the job right [ …] The other reason I attended law school is because of Professor Harvey Zuckman.” This thirst for knowledge and high-level teaching is what set Distinguished Public Service Award Recipient the Honorable Diane Kiesel ’85 on her course from journalist to judge.
