 On April 26, 2018, Professor Bruce Kogan was honored by the Roger Williams University Law community for his remarkable contributions at the dedication of the Professor Bruce I. Kogan Clinic Conference Room.  The ceremony and reception was attended by members of the judiciary, elected officials, alumni, faculty, staff and friends. 
Founding faculty member, two-time interim Dean, master mediator – Professor Bruce I. Kogan has been all these and more, and his name is now permanently ensconced at Roger Williams University School of Law’s experiential campus in downtown Providence.
A Distinguished Career
Professor Kogan’s career has been dedicated to providing his students with practical opportunities to apply what they learn in the classroom, whether by mediating under his supervision in the Rhode Island court system or participating in local zoning board hearings.
Long active in the Rhode Island legal community, Kogan is a co-founder and past president of the first non-profit organization for mediators in the state, the Rhode Island Mediators Association.  He is active as a volunteer mediator with the Center for Collaboration and Mediation of Rhode Island, and was a member of the transition team of Attorney General Peter Kilmartin ‘97, in addition to having served for the past fifteen years on the Bristol, R.I., Zoning Board of Review.
Kogan has authored numerous articles on topics ranging from the Americans with Disabilities Act, to taxation, to disciplinary and ethical issues in divorce and family law (included as a chapter in A Practical Guide to Divorce in Rhode Island, 2009). In addition to Dispute Resolution, Professor Kogan regularly taught Property and Trusts and Estates.
Prior to joining RWU Law, Kogan served as an appellate attorney in the Tax Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, and then practiced law for almost ten years in Pennsylvania, concentrating on taxation, business and estate planning, for-profit and non-profit corporations, and real estate.  He holds a B.A. from Syracuse University, a J.D. from Dickinson School of Law, an LL.M. in Taxation from Georgetown University Law Center, and an honorary doctorate in laws from RWU Law.
All gifts to the RWU Law Alumni Fund in honor of Professor Kogan’s retirement will be used to help us recognize his remarkable contributions.
