It's not likely that Stephanie Richman could have anticipated being offered a career in one of the most prestigious law schools in the country. The attorney likely believed the path to her success would come via time spent at a renowned law firm and perhaps someday experiencing the law from a judge's bench. With this new career she's chosen, she moves forward with purpose and power and while she may not have ruled out the title of Her Honor at some point, she is an important part of the Rutgers family right now.

Richman received her BA in philosophy at Lehigh University. From there, she was accepted into the University of Wisconsin at Madison where she received her Master's, again, in philosophy. Sensing she needed more, she then made the decision to apply to law school, where she was promptly accepted at Temple University School of Law. She graduated summa cum laude.

A powerful educator, an accomplished attorney and proven leader, Richman then accepted an offer with Vedder, Price, Kaufman and Kammholze, PC, located in New York City. She quickly became one of the firm's valued team players and was able to make a significant mark in the field of law. This was done after having already spent time as an associate for Schnader, Harrison, Segal & Lewis.

Richman also found herself serving in the role of law clerk for the late Honorable Robert S. Gawthrop III during his time spent on the US District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.

With all these rich experiences, Richman soon learned that she was in big demand and answered Rutgers call. The rest, as they say, is history.

Rutgers legal programs cover the field from traditional teachings to the more aggressive and technology-based approaches. Richman and her team are diligent in their goals of assisting students as they move forward towards their goal of graduation and eventually, their own legal careers.

When she's not meeting with law students, she's coordinating various job fairs and meeting with law firms throughout the northeastern US. For her team, it comes down to maximizing recruitment opportunities. Whether it's a late evening appointment or a commitment to meeting a student when it's convenient for him, Richman has built a reputation of mutual respect between her and the collective student body. Finally, her office is responsible for publishing various university catalogs throughout the year.
