CAIL Announces Retirement of Vice President and Institute for Law & Technology Director Wendy Castellana

The Center for American and International Law (CAIL) announces the retirement of vice president and Institute for Law and Technology director Wendy Castellana, effective Tuesday, February 28.

"Over the past 16 years, Wendy has brought many valuable contributions to CAIL and ILT that we deeply appreciate," said T.L. Cubbage, CAIL president. "We'll miss her and send her off with our gratitude, friendship, and best wishes for a very happy retirement."

Castellana's tenure at CAIL began in February 2007 when she was hired as a training manager. Her roles then expanded to include directing criminal law and innocence programming, various CLE programs, the now-defunct Institute for Local Government Studies, and the Institute for Law and Technology. She also served as secretary of the Patrick E. Higginbotham Inn of Court. Castellana was promoted to Vice President in January 2020.

"Working with Wendy for the past 16 years has been a true pleasure," shared Gregory Smith, vice president and director of the Institute for Law Enforcement Administration. "Wendy is a light that guides us all. She models the type of gentility and kindness that can sometimes be lost in the workplace and humanity. We're going to miss her."
