Retired professor's second career leads to outreach
Berryhill's new venture
Retired Richmond Law Professor Wade Berryhill’s passion for cigars came about in a somewhat unusual way. He and his research assistant would get together to watch Boston Legal, enjoy a good scotch, and smoke cigars on a weekly basis. That hobby became a second career in 2011, when Berryhill and Kevin Edmiston, owner of Winston’s Humidor in Midlothian, Va., founded Orinoco 1613 Cigars in 2011. Orinoco, Berryhill explained, “was the original name of tobacco in Virginia and, therefore, America. In 1613, John Rolfe grew the first tobacco that was exported to Europe.”

Law and culture intertwined
Italian and American students partner in comparative employment law course
Dillon Taylor, L’16, transferred to the University of Richmond School of Law last year for one key reason: to participate in Professor Ann Hodges’ courses. “She’s really well known in the labor law and employment law arena,” said Taylor. Hodges’ new class on comparative employment law, offered in the Spring 2015 semester, was a natural fit for him, as well as for 12 other students at Richmond Law. But this course has a unique twist: It is jointly taught by Hodges and Maurizio Del Conte, associate professor in the department of law at Bocconi University in Milan, Italy – a UR partner university. “We have a joint class, essentially, in two different places, two different countries, two different continents,” explained Hodges.

Students and alumni support military community
Inaugural Wills for Veterans program at Hunter McGuire
Recognizing that the Richmond area is home to a large number of veterans, a group of students from the University of Richmond School of Law set out to find new ways to support and engage that community. The goal was to create a simple and sustainable outreach program that could provide a direct and immediate benefit to their target audience. “The things that veterans need are not cool and sexy,” said Greg Collins, L’15. They’re the common, everyday things that any community needs, he explained. And that’s where the new Wills for Veterans initiative came into play.
