SPOTLIGHT

Brigette Burnell ’02

When Brigette Burnell ’02 took the job as general counsel and corporate secretary for The Gorman-Rupp Company in Mansfield in 2014, she found a role that suited her varied background and aligned her professional and personal goals.

Burnell, who spent more than eight years working as an associate for Jones Day—including two years in the firm’s Hong Kong office—quickly discovered the “broad-based experience” she gleaned working overseas would be beneficial as the only in-house attorney at the pump-manufacturing company, which reported net sales of $406.2 million last year.Read more

Kyra Fleming ’92

Kyra Fleming ’92 went to work for Dayton Power and Light in 1998 because she envisioned that changes in the energy markets would create opportunities in an industry with a long history of stability.  Two decades later as vice president and general counsel of DTE Energy in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Fleming sees first-hand how vibrant and complex the industry is today. Her division, which handles the company’s nonregulated business, oversees 68 projects in 17 states, focusing on industrial energy services, renewable energy, and environmental controls.

Michael Berry ’05

Practicing  law is one thing. Changing the law is another thing altogether. Michael Berry ’05, has managed to make a career of the latter, defending religious liberties as senior counsel and director of military affairs at First Liberty Institute.

Berry didn’t always know he wanted to pursue a career in constitutional law. After several years of experience as a judge advocate with the Marine Corps, including a high-profile combat deployment to Afghanistan and two years as a law professor at the United States Naval Academy, Berry was looking not simply to argue the law, but to change it.Read more

  • The Future of Libraries in the Digital Age

    Because people so often identify libraries with physical books, new digital information and communication technologies have spawned speculation whether these institutions are obsolete. Libraries, however, predate books, and, in their modern form, libraries of all kinds – public libraries, research libraries, school libraries, professional libraries – still typically stand at the informational heart of the communities they serve. Join I/S: A Journal of Law and Policy For the Information Society March 24-25, 2016, on The Ohio State University campus for “The Future of Libraries in the Digital Age,” an interdisciplinary exploration of the emerging roles of libraries, as well as the roles of law and public policy in shaping libraries’ missions.Read more
