View Bio

In a field full of busy and productive people, Brittany Raposa is a stand out. Brittany is a triple threat who simultaneously excels in teaching, publishing and presenting.

The third year class at Roger Williams University, School of Law acknowledged Brittany’s teaching excellence when they voted her “Professor of the Year.” This impressive and well-deserved honor comes with the title of “Distinguished Teaching Professor of 2021-2022.” Brittany also won the recent Roger Williams award of “Outstanding Woman on Campus.”

Brittany is a prolific writer with an academic and research agenda including books and articles related to law school teaching, the bar exam and reproductive justice issues. She is currently writing a bar exam focused book for Wolters Kluwer, The Visual Guide to the Multistate Bar Examination, with publication expected in 2022. Her creative approach to the MBE provides bar takers with step-by-step analysis using visuals for the heavily tested topics from each MBE tested subject. She also has an upcoming article placed in the Detroit Mercy Law Review entitled, Adding a Layer of Injustice: Amplified Racial Disparities in Reproductive healthcare in the Wake of COVID-19. Another recent article, Maintaining Power Over the Ballot Box and Our Bodies: The Nineteenth Amendment’s Impact on Women’s Right and Access to Reproductive Healthcare, was published in the Chapman Law Review in 2020.

In addition to Brittany’s excellence in teaching and abundant publications, she also finds the time to present. Plan to attend Brittany’s presentation at AASE on Wednesday, May 26, 2021, where she will tackle the timely issue of status concerns for academic support professionals in her presentation entitled, “Views from the Bottom: Reclaiming Power in the Future of Academic Support Professionals.”
