Alumni writes wildfire law

anna freidenburg at legislature 2012 (2)Last year, UW Tacoma alum Anna Freudenberg, a graduate of the Washington State Legislative Internship program and currently a Willamette Law School student, worked with other law students to write and then lobby a bill through the Oregon Legislature.  The bill enacts measures to reduce wildfires, and last year it became law in Oregon.  Anna remarked that  “With­out hav­ing gained all the expe­ri­ence I gained while intern­ing with the Washington State Sen­ate, I am not sure if this would have still been pos­si­ble.”  To her surprise, this year her and her colleagues’ bill was introduced into the Washington Legislature, and on January 17th  it advanced to the House floor for discussion.

PPPA grad off to UPenn Law School

logoCongratulations to Tommy Farrow, a recent PPPA graduate, who was just accepted into the University of Pennsylvania Law School. Penn Law is ranked 7th in the nation among law schools, and Tommy is thrilled with his opportunity to study there.  He credits UW Tacoma faculty for his academic success, but we’d chalk it up to his hard work and endless curiosity.
