Downtown Faculty Teach-in for Scholarships Raises More Than $11K
This year's Downtown Teach-in for Student Scholarships, held Friday, March 7, 2014, was a rousing success! The event raised more than $11,000 for law student scholarships. According to Mike Hogan, Senior Director of Development, this is the equivalent of approximately four-and-a-half endowed scholarships, if done annually.
Attendees were able to take advantage of numerous seminars, ranging from ethics, the courts, and justice and truth, to cell phones, BITs, and amicus pressure. Topics included: The Challenges and Ethics of Changing Clients' Minds about Settlement, The Myth of Truth in American Justice, Topics of Economic Justice, 2013's Top Ten Cases from the Supreme Court of Ohio, The DMCA and Cell Phone Unlocking, Ethical Implications for the Internet Lawyer, and more. College of Law professors led the hour-long seminars, which were hosted at the downtown offices of Frost Brown Todd and Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease. This event was sponsored by the Center for Practice.
