'Opportunities for Lawyers with Nonprofit Organizations'

Nov 18, 2009
Trent Dougherty and Will Reisinger, members of the Ohio Environmental Council (OEC), will discuss opportunities for lawyers working with nonprofit organizations in the Ohio Northern University Pettit College of Law Moot Court Room (129) at noon on Friday, Nov. 20. The event, sponsored by the Environmental Law Society, is free and open to the public.

Dougherty and Reisinger, a 2008 graduate of the Ohio Northern College of Law, will discuss the differences in working at a nonprofit organization and working in government or private practice. They also will talk about the William W. Ellis Ohio Environmental Law Center and the services it provides.

The William W. Ellis Ohio Environmental Law Center began in 2003 out of a relationship forged between the OEC, Ohio Northern University and Capital University Law Schools. The OEC Law Clinic, as it was known in its infancy, provided law students with opportunities to gain hands-on experience in environmental law and real-world education in conservation advocacy. These students worked as the legal research arm of OEC's Clean Air, Clean Water and Legislative Program Teams.

The center is named for the late William W. Ellis, partner at Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease in Columbus, Ohio. Ellis was an accomplished corporate attorney, naturalist and botanist, and along with his wife, Jane Ann, established the Crane Hollow Nature Preserve.
