Lind: Local girl makes good at Harvard as law instructor

She’s a local gal who is still making good. She’s Mary Elizabeth Magill. She’s the daughter of Frank Magill of Fargo, a retired judge of the 8th U.S. Circuit of Appeals, and his wife, Mary. She is a law professor at the University of Virginia.

And this spring she’s a guest instructor at the Harvard Law School.

Busy woman

Mary Elizabeth (aw, let’s just call her Liz; everyone else does), has done well over the years, and then some. Here’s a quick bio:

And now she’s been invited to teach administrative law at Harvard for the spring semester. In fact, she’s doing it even as we write.

She and her husband, Leon Szeptycki, live in Charlottesville, Va.

Her parents, incidentally, are spending the winter in Fort Meyers, Fla.

And Liz? Well, she keeps racking up the honors. Neighbors suspects that even in these tough times, with all this on her resume, she wouldn’t have any trouble finding another job, should she want one.

Which she probably doesn’t.
