UW Faculty Member Recalls Experience as Obama law student

February 11, 2009 — Jacquelyn Bridgeman, a professor in the University of Wyoming College of Law who studied under President Barack Obama while attending the University of Chicago Law School, recently discussed her experience as a law student in an interview with UWTV.

Bridgman taught the African American Studies course in black politics last semester. Her extensive service commitments have included co-chairing the Martin Luther King Days of Dialogue planning committee, teaching and developing curriculum in the African American Studies Program, advising minority student groups, mentoring individual minority students, assisting with the development of UW's new Social Justice Research Center, and serving as a frequent guest speaker or lecturer. She has taught a voluntary overload as a faculty member in the African American Studies Program, where her classes are as well-received as they are in the law school.

She received her B.A. (1996) from Stanford University majoring in African/African-American Studies and anthropology/social sciences. She earned her law degree (1999) degree from the University of Chicago Law School.
