This is the first of two events hosted by the Department of English relating to law and restorative justice 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. 

“From the Classroom to the Courtroom: 2018 UMBC English Alumna Breia Lassiter Tells Her Story"

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.

Cosponsored by the UMBC Alumni Association; the Department of Gender, Women's + Sexuality Studies; the Department of History; the Department of Political Science; the Department of American Studies; the Center for Social Science Scholarship (CS3); and the Dresher Center for the Humanities.
