Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice, PLLC today announced that Burley Mitchell has been appointed to the Board of Trustees for the new Charlotte School of Law.

Charlotte School of Law (CharlotteLaw) is a new, student-centered law school offering full-time and flexible day and evening part-time programs beginning in August 2006. CharlotteLaw is committed to a mission with an educational model that is focused on the highest academic standards and student success.

CharlotteLaw is part of the InfiLaw System, a consortium of independent, community-based law schools that is making legal education more responsive to a changing legal profession. The InfiLaw mission is to launch student-centered, American Bar Association (ABA) accredited law schools that graduate students with the skills of second-year law associates.

""I'm very honored to be appointed to the Board of Trustees for this new educational institution,"" Mitchell said. ""I look forward to serving along with some very esteemed legal and professional individuals to help guide and build on the foundation of this new school.""

Mitchell joined Womble Carlyle during 1999 and is a member of the firm's Government Relations Practice Group. Prior to joining Womble Carlyle, he served as chief justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court. Before his 17 year tenure on the N.C. Supreme Court, Mitchell was a judge in the N.C. Court of Appeals, secretary of the N.C. Department of Crime Control and Public Safety, district attorney in Wake County and assistant N.C. attorney general. He has served as a member of the Governor's Crime Commission since 1977 and chaired the Governor's Advisory Board on Prisons and Punishment. In 2004, Mitchell was honored with the Citation for Distinguished Public Service from the North Carolina Citizens for Business and Industry (NCCBI).

Mitchell currently serves on the Board of Trustees of North Carolina State University and also serves on the Board of Directors for Raleigh's North State Bank. Mitchell is a former president of the NC State Alumni Association Board of Directors, and was named the University's Outstanding Alumnus for 1990.

Charlotte School of Law is governed by a regional Board of Trustees and The InfiLaw System National Policy Board. Both boards include national and international authorities in law, education, government and business. These leaders provide counsel on the strategic direction and long-term plans for the InfiLaw System of independent law schools, and help develop best practices for all of the law schools. The Board of Trustees is chaired by the Honorable Shirley Fulton, former North Carolina Superior Court Judge, and the National Policy Board is chaired by Dennis Archer, past president of the American Bar Association.

Other Board members with whom Mitchell will serve include: Henry Ramsey Jr., dean of Howard University School of Law; Richard A. Matasar, dean and president of New York Law School; Arthur J. Gallagher, president of Johnson & Wales University Charlotte Campus; and Leigh Taylor, dean emeritus and professor of law emeritus at Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles.

Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice, PLLC, today announced that Richard D. (Rick) Jordan has joined the firm's Intellectual Property Practice Group as a member in the Tysons Corner office.

Jordan, a registered patent attorney with degrees in biology and chemical engineering, has worked as a chemical and environmental engineer and as a patent examiner. Jordan has an extensive background in patent prosecution and counseling.

Jordan will work closely with the lawyers in Womble Carlyle’s new office in Wilmington, Del., which is exclusively devoted to intellectual property litigation.

“Womble Carlyle has lawyers in the chemical engineering and biotech areas who are among the most impressive at any major firm,” said Jordan. “My role at the firm will be to help the firm build on its existing chemical, pharmaceutical, and biotech patent practice and thus to help effect one of the firm’s major strategic goals.”

Jordan is a 1991 graduate of the George Mason University School of Law. He also holds a B.A. in chemical engineering from Louisiana State University (1982). and a B.A. in biology from the University of Texas (1977). Before getting his law degree, he worked as a chemical and environmental engineer for the Placid Refining Co. in Port Allen, La., and as a patent examiner and patent agent.

Jordan joins Womble Carlyle from the Washington, D.C. office of Shook Hardy & Bacon, where he had been a partner since 2004. Before that, he practiced at Morrison & Foerster, where he was a partner, and at Crowell & Moring. He also worked in the 1990s for the Exxon Chemical Co. as an in-house technology and patent attorney.

“We are very excited to welcome Rick to Womble Carlyle and the Tysons office,” said Dan Mackesey, managing member of the office. “We expect him to be a real leader in building our patent capabilities in this office and the firm generally.”

Jordan is a member of the District of Columbia and Virginia bars. He began work at Womble Carlyle on May 22, 2006. He can be via email or via phone at (703) 394-2262.

Womble Carlyle’s Tysons Corner office has embarked on an aggressive strategy aimed at becoming the premier corporate and transactional counsel for technology companies in Northern Virginia as well as the premier technology-related litigation firm in the region.
