Making Her Mark in Intellectual Property

One of the top junior members of the RWU Law faculty is Zoe Argento, and I am pleased to report that her recent presentation at a young scholars conference at Stanford Law School was one of only eight spotlighted on the influential blog GigaOm (out of 130).  Zoe’s topic was “Who Owns Social Media,” and you can read a summary of all the top presentations here.

Like all her RWU Law colleagues, Zoe has sterling academic credentials: (magna cum laude from Harvard College, Order of the Coif from Boston College Law), plus a federal clerkship (Chief Federal Judge Mary Lisi) and then a stint at leading Boston firm Ropes & Gray.  What is unique about Zoe is that she served in the United States Navy in the Persian Gulf, first as a Combat Systems Officer, and then as Naval Beach Officer in Charge, responsible for the safe landing of marines and their heavy equipment during Operation Enduring Freedom.  What an amazing set of experiences she brings to RWU.
