Students sometimes ask him what William the Conqueror, a man who lived a thousand years ago was like, but Ronald Brown, tenured professor at the Shepard Broad Law Center, is more than just a professor who has been at NSU since it was a war surplus airfield, he’s a professor who knows the value of history and flexibility.
The 2010 Law School Survey of Student Engagement, conducted by the Association of American Law Schools and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, found that only 20 percent of law students frequently discuss course concepts with their professors and 29 percent discuss career plans with them.
Joshua Rasco joined NSU this fall as a first-year law student at the Shepard Broad Law Center. This native Floridian may have graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Humanities from Florida State University, but he is “a ‘Cane at heart.” Rasco has also been a drummer for 16 years, and plays in the band Thick Wet Fire. He hopes to practice intellectual property law when he graduates. His philosophy is “Life is short, laugh it up.”
