This event has passed

WCC; 2009 Classroom

Join Wasserstein Fellow O.H. Skinner for a community discussion about his career path, a path which saw a transition from a traditional Big Law job in a major city to spending over a decade in public service in Arizona. O.H. will share lessons he learned along the way, how Big Law may (or may not) be helpful to later successes, and how to think about the long arc of your career after HLS.

Lunch provided. RSVP below.

O.H. Skinner is the Executive Director of Alliance for Consumers, a nonprofit dedicated to ensuring that consumer protection efforts, class action lawsuits, and attorney general enforcement actions benefit consumers and the rule of law, not just class action lawyers and government bureaucracy. Prior to starting Alliance for Consumers, O.H. spent almost five years serving Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich in senior positions, including in consumer protection, as the head of special litigation, and as Arizona Solicitor General. O.H. is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard Law School. Prior to joining the Arizona Attorney General’s Office, O.H. practiced at WilmerHale and Ropes & Gray in Boston, Massachusetts, and clerked for the Hon. J.L. Edmondson of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit in Atlanta, Georgia.

If you or an event participant requires disability-related accommodations, please contact HLS Accessibility Services at two weeks in advance of the event.
