The Vorys General Counsel Series
The Vorys General Counsel Series brings leading attorneys of prominent businesses to The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law to speak to law students about their role as general counsel and about current topics in their industry.
The series was designed to bring exceptional general counsel to campus, and has several primary goals: to help students understand the role of the attorney in a business context and to understand the skills they must develop to be successful in-house, and to provide career models for Moritz students who hope to work as General Counsel at some point in their careers.
The series, an integral part of the program, has hosted in-house counsel from Goldman Sachs, BuzzFeed, Cardinal Health, Honda, Express, Limited Brands, Hosting.com and Dun & Bradstreet, among others.
The Law, Finance and Governance program thanks the law firm of Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease LLP for its generous support of the general counsel series.
