Mariah Hogan

CWU Sophomore and Law and Justice major Mariah Hogan (’21) was recognized as an outstanding attorney at the American Mock Trial Association Seattle Regional.  Of the over sixty attorneys who competed at the regional, Hogan was one of only ten attorneys named to the all-regional team.  Hogan earned 17 out of a maximum 20 recognition points across four ballots.  Hogan clinched her award in the final round of the competition by ranking as the top attorney on both ballots – she accomplished this against the team that eventually won the entire regional.  Suffice it to say that Hogan shined brightest while under the most intense of spotlights.  Hogan’s teammates are excited for her accomplishment, and she is a tremendous representative of the team.  Says Hogan:  “I have been very thankful to Mock Trial for welcoming me into a community of empowered, hard-working young people who encourage and challenge me every day to become this bigger, tougher version of myself that I had never been introduced to two years ago."  The Law and Justice Department is proud of Mariah Hogan, and looks forward to her future accomplishments.


Alejandra Lopez Rocha

Alejandra Lopez Rocha, a senior Law and Justice major and McNair Scholar at CWU, presented a paper, “Structural Violence and Mexican Immigration,” on February 8 at the annual Western Society of Criminology meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii. Rocha’s research addressed the structural violence immigrants encounter before and after they reach the U.S.-Mexico border. Rocha, 22, who plans to attend graduate school, said she is interested in pursuing the topic further in her post-graduate career.
