Board of Governors' Retreat, August 12-13
The Great Wolf Lodge in Mason, Ohio was the scene of the August 12-13 2011 Columbus Bar Association Board of Governors' Retreat.
New 'Virtual Runner' Option for Race Judicata 5K
The 5th Annual Race Judicata, presented by the Moritz College of Law Student Bar Association, is set for September 23, and proceeds from this year's race benefit the Columbus Bar Foundation.
The Moritz SBA would love to see a huge turnout from the central Ohio legal community this year - runners, walkers, and pets are all welcome - but if you can't participate in the race, you can still support Race Judicata by becoming a Virtual Runner.
