2016 Brandeis Law grad returns to the classroom — as a guest speaker
Just a little more than a year since he graduated from the Brandeis School of Law, Rudy Ellis was back in the classroom — but this time, he was up front.
Ellis, a 2016 graduate of Brandeis Law, is now an associate attorney with Goldberg Simpson in Louisville. He came back to the school in October 2017 as a guest speaker in Professor Laura McNeal's Civil Procedure class.
"He did a wonderful job helping the first-year students make connections between theory and the practice of law," McNeal said.
Ellis' practice primarily includes insurance defense and business and commercial litigation.
His presence in the class was inspiring, said first-year student Austin Conway.
"Rudy Ellis allowed me to see the importance of what we are learning, and just how prevalent the rules and theories of law are when advancing through his everyday practice," Conway said. "Seeing someone like Rudy, who was in our positions just a few years ago, being successful in applying what he learned here at Brandeis is extremely encouraging for the future."
