The law firm of Bose McKinney & Evans LLP is pleased to announce that partner Mary Feldhake will participate in a “Careers in Law” fair coordinated by paralegal Julia Kleinschmidt at Shortridge Magnet High School on June 7. As the first class since 1981 prepares to graduate, Feldhake will help educate more than 545 students about careers in healthcare law.
Organized in conjunction with Law Day 2013, “Careers in Law” will provide Indianapolis Public School (IPS) students with a well-rounded perspective of available resources within the legal field. To highlight the diverse range of fields important to the practice of law and the judicial system, representatives from a variety of careers will attend including paralegals, bailiffs, legal software specialists, court reporters and probation officers. The fair is co-hosted by the Indiana Bar Association Paralegal Committee and Modern Information Solutions.
“There are many career opportunities in law, and this fair with 18 different booths staffed by multiple professionals provides students with the resources to start planning for their futures,” said Kleinschmidt, who is a graduate of Shortridge High School. This is the second year she has coordinated the “Careers in Law” fair.
IPS’ Shortridge Magnet High School for Law and Public Policy is a college preparatory program for students in grades six through 12 that focuses on the principles of democracy, justice, respect and service to others.
First established by President Dwight Eisenhower in 1958, Law Day is a national holiday aimed to reflect on the role of law in the foundation of the country and to recognize its importance for society. This year’s Law Day theme is “Realizing the Dream: Equality for All.”
