Two new law professors joined the William & Mary Law School faculty in July: Darian M. Ibrahim and Sarah R. Wasserman Rajec.
"We are delighted to have Darian and Sarah with us," said Law School Dean Davison M. Douglas. "They are both accomplished teachers and scholars and are wonderful additions to the Law School community."
Professor Darian M. Ibrahim joined William & Mary from the University of Wisconsin Law School, where he was a tenured member of the faculty. His teaching and research interests encompass corporate and securities law and their application to entrepreneurial activity. He received his J.D., magna cum laude, from Cornell, where he was articles editor of the Cornell Law Review and inducted into Order of the Coif. He holds a B.S. in chemical engineering from Clemson University. Following law school, he practiced law at Troutman Sanders in Atlanta and clerked for Chief Justice Norman S. Fletcher of the Georgia Supreme Court. He taught previously at the University of Arizona College of Law, where he was voted Teacher of the Year for 2006-2007 by the student body. His work has appeared in the Cornell Law Review, Vanderbilt Law Review, the University of Illinois Law Review, and other leading journals.
Professor Sarah R. Wasserman Rajec came to the Law School from Stanford, where she was a lecturer in law and teaching fellow in the Law, Science & Technology Program. Her areas of expertise include patent law, intellectual property, and trade law. Rajec earned an undergraduate physics degree, with honors, at Brown University, and a J.D., cum laude, at the University of Michigan. She began her career in the Boston office of Fish & Richardson, where she practiced patent litigation. She later clerked for Judge Donald C. Pogue of the U.S. Court of International Trade and for Judge Alan D. Lourie of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. She taught previously at George Washington University Law School, where she was the Frank H. Marks Visiting Associate Professor of Law. Her articles have been published by the Berkeley Technology Law Journal, Hastings Law Journal, and American University Law Review.
Thomas Jefferson founded William & Mary Law School in 1779 to train leaders for the new nation. Now in its third century, America's oldest law school continues its historic mission of educating citizen lawyers who are prepared both to lead and to serve.
