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.”

Putin engineers shakeup that could keep him in power longer

Jan 28, 2020

MOSCOW — President Vladimir Putin engineered a surprise shakeup of Russia's leadership Wednesday, proposing changes to the constitution that could keep him in power well past the end of his term in 2024. Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev resigned his post after Putin announced the proposed constitutional amendments.

The shakeup sent shock waves through Russia's political elites who were left pondering what Putin's intentions were and speculating about future Cabinet appointments. Putin’s proposed constitutional reforms, announced...

Sultan Qaboos bin Said, who modernized Oman, dies at 79

Jan 28, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said, the Mideast's longest-ruling monarch who seized power in a 1970 palace coup and pulled his Arabian sultanate into modernity while carefully balancing diplomatic ties between adversaries Iran and the U.S., has died. He was 79. The British-educated, reclusive sultan reformed a nation that was home to only three schools and harsh laws banning electricity, radios, eyeglasses and even umbrellas when he took the throne. Under his reign, Oman became known as a welcoming tourist destination and a key Mideast interlocutor, helping the U.S. free captives in Iran and Yemen and...

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

Jan 28, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

Jan 28, 2020

NEW YORK — U.S stocks climbed in morning trading on Thursday as investors cheered confirmation from China that its top trade official will head to Washington next week to sign a preliminary trade deal. The “Phase 1” accord is the opening step on a possible path toward a broader agreement between the nations. President Donald Trump has said he will travel to Beijing after the initial signing to start the second stage of talks. Every major index is on track for a record as Wall Street distances itself from a bout of anxiety over the last week because of tensions...

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Jan 28, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns. Relatively...
