A poster says from the Classroom to the Courtroom

The Department of English hosts two events relating to law and restorative justice on March 27, inspired by the career path of 2018 UMBC English Alumna Breia Lassiter. She will return to UMBC to share her experiences with the university community. In this event, From the Classroom to the Courtroom, Lassiter will discuss her path from her undergraduate time at UMBC to her coming an associate attorney at a law firm.

Breia Lassiter (Juris Doctor, Michigan State University), Associate Attorney in the Employment Law practice group of Dinsmore & Shohl, a law firm in Cincinnati, Ohio, will discuss her personal history from her days as an English major at UMBC, through law school and work as a student clinician at Michigan State University, to taking the bar exam, passing it, and finally now working as an Associate Attorney at a law firm. This talk will be of interest to all alumni, and to Pre Law, English, and other CAHSS majors, in particular, who are considering career paths in public service.

Admission is free.

Please join us later in the day for a 4 p.m. panel discussion, Restorative Justice and the Rights of the Incarcerated.

Co-sponsors: the UMBC Alumni Association; and the following departments: English, GWST, History, Political Science, American Studies, the Center for Social Science Scholarship (CS3); and the Dresher Center for the Humanities.
