Second Annual Law School Day

2013 FlyerBrescia University is pleased to welcome representatives from all three law schools in Kentucky on Tuesday, October 15 from 2-3 pm. The Chase College of Law at Northern Kentucky University, the Brandeis School of Law at the University of Louisville, and the College of Law at the University of Kentucky will each have representatives on campus for a presentation and question/answer session.

Dr. Allen Gehring, Brescia University Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Philosophy Area Coordinator, has initiated this opportunity. “I want to stress that this event is not just for those who know they want to pursue law school. This is open to anyone who isn’t certain what profession they are going to choose. It will help such people to think through some of the details of the legal profession and to ask questions they have directly to the representatives.  Moreover, everyone that comes to the event will profit from it by learning more about the legal profession and networking with some professionals in it.”

After the representatives give their presentation, there will be a short break with light refreshments from 3-3:15 pm.

Beginning at 3:15 until 4 pm is a new opportunity this year. An all-star panel of members from Owensboro’s legal community will be on hand for a question and answer session discussing their careers in the legal profession. The panel includes Judge Lisa Payne Jones ’93 with the Daviess County District Court; Jesse Offill with Cooley Law Office; Brad Rhoads with Rhoads and Rhoads, P.S.C.; and David Farley and Heather Blackburn, both with the Kentucky Department of Public Advocacy.

The event takes place in the Study Pavilion, which is located on the second floor of the Campus Center (717 Frederica Street).
