The five law journals at the Moritz College of Law recently named their editors-in-chief for the 2009-10 school year. Peter Glenn-Applegate will lead the Ohio State Law Journal; Kevin Oles will take over the Ohio State Journal on Dispute Resolution; Miranda Leppla was named editor in chief of the Ohio State Journal of Criminal Law; Marjorie Yano will take the helm of I/S: A Journal of Law and Policy for the Information Society; and Clarence Dass will head the Entrepreneurial Business Law Journal.
Glenn-Applegate, of Cincinnati, graduated with an undergraduate degree in theatre from Williams College. Glenn-Applegate expects to work in the Columbus office in Bricker & Eckler in the 2009 summer program. He said that working on the journal has improved his editing and writing in ways that should help during his career. “Moritz generally and the journal specifically have offered me extraordinary opportunities,” he said. “My position as editor-in-chief allows me to give back in a way that matches my abilities and interests.”
Oles is a Columbus native and attended the University of Notre Dame as an undergraduate. There he majored in philosophy and political science. Oles said that he originally joined the Journal on Dispute Resolution to learn more about the field of alternative dispute resolution and to improve his writing and editing abilities. “The journal reflects the unique synergy at this law school — we have an excellent faculty that studies and teaches in the field of alternative dispute resolution while the journal serves as a hotbed of legal scholarship in the area,” he said.
Leppla, of Germantown, Ohio, graduated from the University of Chicago as a major in law, letters & society. Leppla plans to work in the firm of Vorys, Sater, Seymour & Pease in the 2009 summer program. “The journal’s reputation for excellence and high quality scholarship is what drew me to join it initially, and also what pushed me to want to be involved as editor-in-chief so that I could have a real impact on the future of the journal,” Leppla said.
Yano grew up in Columbus and attended Amherst College as an undergraduate. There she majored in history and political science. In the upcoming summer, Yano expects to work as a judicial intern for Judge Jeffrey S. Sutton '90, United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. Yano said her goals for the journal are to continue publishing highly regarded articles and expand the journal’s subscription base. “The success of this journal is something that is very important to me, and being editor-in-chief puts me in a position to make sure that things are running smoothly and that we’re staying on the path to greater success and recognition,” she said.
Dass, of Bloomfield Hills, Mich., graduated from Wayne State University as a history major. He plans to spend his 2009 summer at Dickinson Wright, PLLC, in Detroit. “I take great pride in EBLJ and the students that comprise it,” he said. “I have been very fortunate to have worked in multi-faceted and diverse areas — both in the private and public sectors. I sought the position of editor-in-chief because I knew that, based on these experiences, I would be able to influence our students just as much as they would influence me.”
