Taft attorney Michael W. Bowen has been invited by the dean of Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, Lee Fisher, to participate as one of four distinguished recent graduates in a panel discussion at the college on Aug. 18. The participants will share experiences and anecdotal advice with the first-year class at an orientation program. The evening event will also feature Mayor Frank Jackson and invited officials from Cleveland city government, as well as an address by Judge Benita Pearson.

During law school, he served as articles editor of the Cleveland State Law Review, was a member of the Moot Court (Frederick Douglass Moot Court competition) and served as vice president of the Black Law Students’ Association, among other activities.
