Employers and Minorities in the Law Interview for Clerkships
Seventeen attorneys helped move this year’s class of 1L and 2L law clerks to the next step of the Minority Clerkship Program application process with interviews on Saturday and Monday, February 12 and 14. As part of their application the clerks have already written an answer for a case that was blind graded by a law professor, submitted resumes and a career goal statement. Later this month they will find out if they made the cut and are matched with an employer.
Minorities in the Law Committee co-chairs Karim Ali and Stephanie Hanna managed the interviews and conducted a debriefing as the volunteers ate lunch. In teams of two, this year’s attorney interviewers were Jen Adair, Ohio Attorney General; Candace Christon, City Attorney Prosecutor Division; Melvin Davis, Reminger; Lindsay Ellis, Judicial Attorney Supreme Court; Megan Goeser, Freund Freeze & Arnold; Kimberly Herlihy, Vorys; Rasheeda Khan, Kegler Brown; Philip King, Supreme Court Office of Disciplinary Counsel; Terrance Mebane, Thompson Hine; Nikki Mensard, Wiles Boyle; Elizabeth Moyo, Porter Wright; Karen Osmond, Supreme Court Office of Disciplinary Counsel; Winnie Sim, Baker & Hostetler; Jameel Turner, Bailey Cavalieri; Jeffrey Willis, Dinsmore & Shohl.
