Roger Williams Law School will be awarding an honorary law degree to Professor Bruce I. Kogan at this year's Commencement.  Referred to as a luminary, Professor Kogan is a founding faculty member at RWU Law who has twice (in 1998-1999 and 2001-2003) served as Dean of Rhode Island’s only law school, and is one of the state’s leading experts on alternatives to litigation. 

“I am very excited that the law school is able to honor people whose work is so consonant with our values,” said Michael J. Yelnosky, Dean of RWU Law.  Yelnosky went on to say "Professor Kogan helped design a forward-looking curriculum that emphasized practical skills and public service when he helped found the school in 1993.” 

RWU President Donald J. Farish, added “At Roger Williams University, we think it is particularly important to recognize those who have contributed to the public good and who reflect our institutional mission of strengthening society.”
