Training Held for Law Students Participating in State Program
The Law and Leadership Institute (LLI) is hosting a 2014 Leadership Training and Reception for nearly 70 law students and law school administrators from across Ohio who will serve as instructors during this year’s LLI Summer Institute. More than 425 high school students are expected to participate in the 2014 institute.
LLI collaborates with the state’s legal community to prepare students from underserved communities for college and professional success. The four-year academic program provides classes about law, leadership, analytical thinking, problem solving, writing skills, and professionalism.
The training and reception will be held on June 12-13 at The Ohio State University 4H Center. The lawyers and administrators will participate in workshops focused on LLI’s curriculum used to introduce high school students to the law and legal system.
“The Leadership Conference is an important opportunity for all LLI sites statewide to come together rand refocus on our mission for the coming year,” Heather Creed, LLI chief operations officer, said. “Our students are at the heart of everything we do, and the better prepared our staff is, the more effectively they can serve the students.”
LLI will honor several law offices and LLI supporters during the June 12 reception where Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor will be accepting the Exemplary Legal Supporter award on behalf of the Ohio Supreme Court.
