Richard Rogers, BA(Hons.)'84

Rogers, RichardI was born in Toronto on October 3, 1962. My father was born and raised in St. John's and my mother from Port Saunders on the Northern Peninsula. I have two sisters, Gerry Rogers who is involved with Newfoundland provincial politics and another sister residing in Winnipeg, a retired administrator. My wife of 29 years is Dr. Sheilagh McGrath (BSc '83 MD '87 Memorial ) family physician in Mt. Pearl. I have one son, Ben Rogers who is graduating from St. Bonaventures this year. I obtained a BA(Hons) at MUN in 1984 and a LLB in 1988 from UNB. I have practiced in private law since my graduation. My areas of concentration have been numerous including criminal, family, administrative, real estate and personal injury. For many years I have worked with and represented First Nations people in British Columbia. I articled with the Department of Justice criminal and civil divisions and began my career with Williams, Harris. I became a partner with that firm and remained with them for 15 years. I then formed the firm in which I am now senior partner, Rogers, Rogers and Moyse. I have been practicing for close to 30 years. I have a very successful firm with a solid connection to the people in this Province. I have sat on many boards including the Brain Injury Association, LSPU Hall, Lakecrest Independent School, NL Bar committees and Wonder Bolt Circus. I have guest lectured at MUN schools of Business, Medicine, Education, Psychology and Sociology. I am also involved in the Arts community in various capacities as a lawyer providing pro bono work and financial support. I am a proud supporter of MUN and would appreciate the opportunity to provide my experience and abilities in working with like minded alumni in promoting and guiding this fantastic university.
