Class Notes Brian H. Potts 9/24/2015  
Foley & Lardner LLP announced that Brian Potts has been named a Wisconsin Law Journal 2011 Up and Coming Lawyer. According to the Wisconsin Law Journal, this honor recognizes individuals who have demonstrated leadership, contributed to their community, successfully achieved legal outcomes early in their career, and have been practicing for eight years or fewer. Brian is senior counsel in the firm's Madison office. He has authored multiple articles on the Clean Air Act and power plant regulation, one of which was cited in two reports to Congress. As part of his commitment to pro bono service, Brian took on a significant pro bono criminal case and was successful in overturning his client's conspiracy conviction while establishing an important precedent for criminal rights. He also provides pro bono service locally to the Sauk Prairie Conservation Alliance, most recently through negotiating the eventual conversion of a rail line into a hiking trail for the betterment of the community.
Class Notes Elizabeth V. Mulholland 9/18/2015  
I left the NH Public Defender in May 2015 after nearly 8 years there to join the civil litigation team at the NH Attorney General's Office. My new job is fantastic and the work is always interesting. While it was difficult to leave my public defender family, the new challenges more than make up for it!
Class Notes Elizabeth V. Mulholland 9/18/2015  
Emma Sisti and Jeremy Clemans are still at New Hampshire Public Defender and are realizing firsthand the challenges that come with being full-time trial lawyers and full-time parents. "Spencer is growing every day and it is hard to not be there all the time. We are lucky to have Liz '07 and Evan LLM'05 Mulholland and their super-cute twins, Lucy and Sadie, who are only three months older than Spencer, right nearby! Jason Malone came for a visit in June, and we saw Tim Winslow in Michigan in August. We all enjoyed seeing more friends at Reunion!"
