The alumni magazine of the S.J. Quinney College of Law
Fall 2023 Issue
Welcome to the newest issue of Res Gestae, Utah Law's alumni magazine!
In this issue we meet the four Serassio sisters—Melanie, Helen, Carey, and Serena—who all attended Utah Law within a nine-year span, and remember Carey, who died of cancer in November 2022.
We also honor alumna Beatrice Kroesche, of whom the Beatrice F. Kroesche Memorial Scholarship was named, and learn more about Paulina Barboza, who received the first fund scholarship at Utah Law. Finally, alum Vince Mancini discusses his path to becoming an honors attorney at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
Check out Class Notes to read about alumni's professional and personal accomplishments — and submit your own! We publish them each year in our fall issue.
Four sisters never planned to attend the same law school. But as luck would have it, it happened anyway. The Serassio sisters include Melanie (’98), Helen (’00), Carey (’02) and Serena (’07), each with a unique story as to how they ended up at Utah Law.Read More

In August, Mancini was hired as an honors attorney with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a federal agency that ensures fairness within consumer financial markets.Read More
