Columbus Alumni-Student Networking SocialThursday, April 3, 2014
The Student Bar Association hosted a networking event in Columbus on April 3 for students and area law alumni. Attendees included the mayor of Columbus, Michael Coleman '80. Coleman challenged law students to "think about how they intend to use their law degree," recalling a similar conversation following his graduation from law school that he had with Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall.
Coleman is in his fourth term as mayor. He has overseen dramatic growth and economic progress in the state's capital. Coleman is the city's longest-serving mayor and our nation's longest serving black mayor. 3L Miles Yetter was instrumental in coordinating Mayor Coleman's attendance.
The Student Bar Association is planning more events that include opportunities to meet with alumni outside of the Dayton area.
