Wake Forest School of Law alumni are featured regularly in the media. Following is a roundup of news mentions from March 2018:
David Parsons (JD ’86) was featured in Outer Banks Sentinel on March 6:
David Parsons, International Christian Embassy Jerusalem
International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ) spokesman David Parsons, a longtime resident of the Outer Banks, will be returning to the area to speak about Israel and his new book, Floodgates. When Jesus’ disciples asked for His views on the end times, He pointed to the “days of Noah” as the key to unlocking the timing of “the coming of the Son of Man.” Floodgates unravels what happened in the Flood of Noah and explains how this important biblical event provides a paradigm for the End Times.
James “Jim” Roberson (JD ’75) was featured in Times News on March 8:
Jim Roberson, Alamance County Superior Court (former)
Senior Resident Superior Court Judge Jim Roberson announced this week he will retire June 30, a year to the day since his predecessor’s retirement. Roberson, 68, has been a judge for 18 years, three and a half of them in Superior Court, after 20 years in private practice in Alamance County. In 1975, after law school at Wake Forest University, Roberson worked at Long, Rich and Long on Court Square practicing criminal and civil law, taking a break from private practice from 1983 to 1987 to work as an assistant district attorney. He was first elected a District Court judge in 2000, and was appointed chief District Court judge in 2004. One of the things Roberson said he is most proud of is the county’s Family Justice Center and groundbreaking Electronic Domestic Violence Protective Order Program, which allows victims of domestic violence — Roberson is careful to say alleged victims — to complete the process without leaving the Family Justice Center, where they can speak to a judge via video link and take all the necessary steps without going to different offices in Burlington and Graham.
