Rima Kapitan is our latest Featured Speaker!

Our latest featured speaker is Rima Kapitan from Kapitan Gomma Law!

Rima recently spoke at our 15th Annual Federal Court Boot Camp: The Nuts and Bolts (IL) program on May 16, 2024 to rave reviews!

At this popular program attendees learn about litigating in Federal Court from start to finish. They get a multitude of perspectives from faculty – plaintiff and defense attorneys – as well as hearing from Federal Court Judges.

Rima joined the program for the first time this year and the attendees loved her.

Rima Kapitan specializes in employment litigation, consulting and advocacy on behalf of employees and small businesses. In recent years she has increasingly focused on academic issues, representing professors in appeals of tenure denials, litigating civil rights cases in the university setting, and providing consulting for faculty governance bodies. She has spoken on the topic of academic freedom at conferences and panels of the American Association of University Professors, the New York University School of Law, the Fordham University School of Law, and California State University. She also previously served as Managing Partner of a 7-attorney law firm.
