Roger Tejada
Fall 2022–Spring 2023

Roger is a native of Passaic, New Jersey, where he grew up playing basketball and football, as well as the violin and saxophone. At Bowdoin College, he became an all-state rugby player, and played in Australia, all while studying comparative politics and international relations. Before law school, he taught elementary, college, and graduate school all over, including in his hometown, New York City, Palestine, and Brazil. If Roger is not reading appellate briefs and opinions or working on his scholarship, you'll find him sweating profusely on a basketball court, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu mat, or squash court in the winter or hiking and kayaking in the summer.
