Carolyn Broering-Jacobs, the Director of Legal Writing at Cleveland-Marshall, shared this sad news on the legal writing professors' listserve:
"With a heavy heart, I write to share news of the sudden and unexpected passing of Janice Aitken, a beloved colleague and friend. Janice joined the Cleveland-Marshall faculty as a Legal Writing Professor five years ago, and she previously worked for the school as an adjunct professor teaching a scholarly writing course. Janice also was a graduate of Cleveland-Marshall, so relationships with Janice reach back to long before she became our colleague."
"Janice's commitment to the school and its students was beyond compare. Even at times when her own health made long hours especially difficult, Janice could be found cheerfully keeping late night and weekend hours to meet with students. Janice also worked extensively with several C|M|Law moot court teams, including teams competing in the Stetson International Environmental Moot Court Competition."
Our condolences go out to her family and colleagues.
