Law school programs advance pro bono ethic, spirit of volunteerism among students

Students apply legal knowledge, skills to help those in need

Giving back to the community is a vital part of life as an attorney and a professional obligation. More importantly, it can be one of the most rewarding parts of a lawyers life. Just ask Emily Plocki, Natalie Powers or dozens of other very busy law students who spent hours working with lawyers and legal organizations to help the community and obtain real-life legal experience.

Dean Douglas Ray launched the Pro Bono Commendation Program in January 2007. It builds upon and encourages student interest in helping the community, supplements the legal services provided by
College of Law clinics and provides a way to recognize those who perform significant public service. In Rays view, "this program gives students the opportunity to work with wonderful role model attorneys in legal aid and the Toledo Bar Associations Pro Bono Program, the opportunity to learn legal skills and build confidence, and, most importantly, to learn the difference a lawyer can make in a persons life."

Passing the torch

Legal education at Toledo Law is a three-generation family affair for Toledos Cubbon family

After watching her grandfather, father, mother and several other relatives all graduates of University of Toledo College of Law have successful legal careers, Jocelyn Cubbon DeMars, a member of law school's Class of 2010, is ready to make her own mark on the legal world.

"I've loved my three years in law school, but I cant wait to move to Cincinnati and start to practice," said Jocelyn, who is moving with her husband, William, a pilot with regional air carrier American Eagle, to Cincinnati, where she will become an associate in the corporate department of Dinsmore & Shohl LLP. "I have so much to learn beyond what I learned in law school."

Supreme Court Argument

Bluffton Bus Crash

Jim Yavorcik, one of our attorneys, argued before the Ohio Supreme Court in September on an insurance coverage case stemming from a 2007 bus crash that killed 5 members of the Bluffton University baseball team and injured several others. At issue was whether the universities liability policy covered the driver of the bus under the hired vehicle clause of the policy.
