Jamie Campbell Selected as 2019 Recipient of Cunningham & Mears Academic Scholarship

Cunningham & Mears has selected Oklahoma City University School of Law student Jamie Campbell for its 2019 scholarship winner.

Oklahoma City, OK, United States - September 11, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —

Cunningham & Mears is proud to announce that Jamie Campbell is the 2019 recipient of the Cunningham & Mears Academic Scholarship. This is the inaugural year of the annual scholarship, and Jamie Campbell is the first winner.

“She is an extraordinary young person, and an ideal candidate for this award,” said firm co-founder Ryan Cunningham. “When we started this scholarship fund, it was to help students who wanted to make a difference, and who needed an extra leg up to do it. Ms. Campbell is academically gifted and driven to succeed, and we are thrilled that we can help her.”
Jamie Campbell is a rising 2L student at the Oklahoma City University School of Law. Before attending law school, she worked as a paralegal. Ms. Campbell moved halfway across the country to attend OCU Law, where she hopes to work with the Oklahoma Innocence Project.

Ms. Campbell told the firm that the Innocence Project inspired her to study law, and to effect changes in the criminal justice system. Because her husband is an active duty U.S. Marine, she spent most of her adult life moving, which made choosing the right law school more challenging. When she learned that OKIP was housed at Oklahoma City University School of Law, she knew she had found the right school for her. She is an active member of the Fighting for Innocence Through Exoneration (F.I.T.E.) Club, and plans to pursue work in the area of post-conviction appeals. She also hopes to work with legislators to change the criminal justice system, in her words, “to enact new laws that will create a fairer justice system than the one that is currently in place.”

Sep 15, 2019

DETROIT — The United Auto Workers union announced Sunday that its roughly 49,000 workers at General Motors plants in the U.S. would go on strike just before midnight because contentious talks on a new contract had broken down. About 200 plant-level union leaders voted unanimously in favor of a walkout during a meeting Sunday morning in Detroit.

Zimbabwean doctors protest against abduction of union leader

Sep 15, 2019

HARARE, Zimbabwe — A group of Zimbabwean doctors marched at the country's biggest hospital Sunday, demanding the release of one of their leaders who they say was abducted after calling for a pay strike.

The Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association said its president Peter Magombeyi was abducted Saturday, days after receiving threats on his phone. It was reported as the world's attention is on the southern African...

Egypt's el-Sissi dismisses corruption allegations

Sep 15, 2019

CAIRO — Egypt's president on Saturday dismissed corruption allegations made by a businessman-in- exile about the country's military as "sheer lies and defamation." In viral social media videos posted over the past week, the entrepreneur alleged large-scale misuse of public funds in the building of luxurious hotels, presidential palaces and a tomb for President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi's mother who died in 2014. "I've built presidential palaces and I will continue to do so," el-Sissi, a general-turned-president, said in televised comments. "I am building a new country. ... All of this is not mine. It's Egypt's." El-Sissi was responding to claims by...

WASHINGTON — Washington Capitals forward Evgeny Kuznetsov has been suspended without pay for three regular-season games by the NHL for inappropriate conduct, less than a month after he was banned from playing for Russia for four years because of a positive test for cocaine. The NHL announced its punishment Saturday, saying it followed a meeting with Commissioner Gary Bettman on Monday. Kuznetsov will not appeal. "I have decided to accept the NHL's suspension today. I am once again sorry that I have disappointed my family, my teammates, and the Capitals organization and fans," he said in a statement issued by...

Warren has her own plan for everything - except this

Sep 15, 2019

WASHINGTON — Elizabeth Warren has a plan for that. But on health care, she's with Bernie. Warren, a Massachusetts senator and a leading liberal Democratic presidential candidate, has stood out in the 2020 race for her extraordinary focus on detailed plans to address the nation's most pressing issues. Her website lists specific policies for 43 topics: gun violence, Social Security, the Electoral College and even family farmers. But on the issue that matters most to many voters — health care — Warren is all in on her opponent Bernie Sanders' "Medicare for All" plan. The seeming inconsistency was highlighted during...
