Law library specialist leaves her mark on the walls of Worrell

swenson.mural.300x175Law library specialist Holly Swenson is a designer and artist who, in addition to her other responsibilities, also helps produce the law school’s alumni magazine, The Jurist.

When construction began in the basement of the Worrell Professional Center, Swenson saw the opportunity to use one of the walls as a canvas to practice painting a mural. The result is a modern take on a portion of Michaelangelo’s “Creation of Adam.”

Read more about the mural in a Q&A with Swenson written by School of Law Communications student intern, Rachel Wallen (’17)

Visit the law school library’s service desk for help in finding the mural, which will be available for viewing through the fall semester.

14742621531_82d85c3b6e_zWake Forest law professor Tracey Banks Coan has been named the law school’s first assistant dean for academic engagement.

“Professor Coan stays on top of the literature about the best teaching and best learning techniques in legal education,” says Interim Dean Suzanne Reynolds (’77). “This new position helps insure that her insights will shape what faculty and students experience at Wake Forest Law.”

Coan teaches commercial law courses and directs the Academic Engagement Program (AEP).  The AEP enhances law students’ academic performance through skills workshops, study groups, specialized courses and individual mentoring.

“Over the years, Tracey has optimally led our academic achievement efforts and garnered huge dividends for our students and the law school,” says former Dean Blake D. Morant, who appointed Coan. “During these challenging times in legal education, Wake Forest Law has, and will continue to benefit, from Tracey’s adroit guidance and efforts.”
