The Ohio State Bar Foundation Announces Fellows Week of Service; Class to Launch Legal Learning with Lawyers
April 26, 2021
The Ohio State Bar Foundation (OSBF) announces its 2021 Fellows Week of Service, where attorney members (Fellows) across the state of Ohio commit to participate in an act of service. For this year’s program, Legal Learning with Lawyers, attorneys will teach about the American justice system at high schools, colleges, civic organizations, associations, and law firms. Topics include the legal ramifications of turning 18, the hidden problem of human trafficking in Ohio, our rights under the US Constitution, and more. This year’s Fellows Week of Service begins April 26, 2021.
“Every year we welcome a new class of Fellows to our membership that commits to give freely of their time and expertise through service,” stated OSBF President Velda Hofacker. “This year’s class chose to present law-related educational programs throughout the state,” she added.
“I don’t know that the public realizes that many attorneys, in addition to their regular practice, volunteer their time to serve their communities. The OSBF recognizes the efforts of these attorneys while connecting them to others who are like-minded so that they can come together to work on projects or issues and collectively make a bigger impact,” said OSBF Executive Director Lori Keating.
The Fellows Week of Service ends on Law Day, May 1, a national day set aside to celebrate the rule of law. Law Day provides an opportunity to understand how law and the legal process protect our liberty, strive to achieve justice, and contribute to the freedoms that all Americans share.
