The Student to Lawyer (S2L) Symposium is a biennial conference put on by the Supreme Court of Ohio's Commission on Professionalism that engages a variety of stakeholders—law students, law schools, lawyers, law firms, legal organizations, industry leaders, and bar associations—to explore a topic relevant to law students and practicing lawyers. The goal of the conference is to develop a sustainable focus on assisting law students in their transition to becoming practitioners and on supporting the practicing bar.
Although the legal profession is steeped in tradition and generally regarded as reluctant to change, challenges presented by the pandemic have forced lawyers and law practice to be nimble, engaging in innovation inside and outside the courtroom.
The 2022 Symposium will be held virtually and have three types of programming to empower participants to adapt to law’s current and future practice:
(1) The modernization of legal education;
(2) New practices in the workplace; and
(3) Innovative ways to address access to justice.
3.25 hours of General CLE have been requested from the Commission on Continuing Legal Education.
