Now, though, university officials say the clinic cannot rescind the legal representation it agreed to provide to Robinson in good moral standing. “Had the clinic known [the law student would be representing the killer of a Northeastern student], they never would have taken the case,” said university spokesperson Laura Shea. “They felt they had an ethical responsibility to see the case through.” Shea said this was the first time in the clinic’s 25-year history a case has come up with what she called “potential conflicts of interest.” منتديات تداول هوامير البورصة “It wasn’t red-flagged because it was the first time it happened,” she said. “Within the university, there are many centers of decision making that exist.

التطبيق التجريبي خيار ثنائي Belmore said Northeastern has always been supportive of her family since her brother’s death, making it even less understandable why a “conflict of interest,” as she called the situation, would spring up now.

“I don’t understand why another school couldn’t have taken it on,” she said. “We don’t understand how the school had no idea he was a Northeastern student.”

The stabbing of Belmore, who was a 19-year-old sophomore with aspirations of becoming an FBI agent, shocked the campus, setting off a series of questions about the vulnerability of students at a campus on the edge of Roxbury.

Robinson, then a juvenile who had previously been arrested on charges of assault and battery with a deadly weapon, jumped Belmore along with three friends as he was walking to a friend’s house along Blackwood Avenue. They beat him and stabbed him 22 times, according to police reports.

Robinson later turned himself in, and has been held in custody ever since.

Belmore said she remembers hearing of her brother’s death “very vividly.”

She said both her choice of college and major have helped her to cope with his death.

“My brother was a [criminal justice] major, so I just became interested in it after he was killed,” she said.

John Belmore, Heather and Mark’s father, said he was also “disappointed” in the university’s handling of the case.

“If the university sent a letter to the parole board opposing his parole, it seems like a conflict of interest to me,” said Belmore, who still lives in Walpole and visits his son’s grave regularly.

He said this issue was particularly taking a toll on his daughter.

“It affects [my wife and I], but it really affects her because she is a student there,” he said Monday. “I don’t know how she keeps up what she does.”
