Cleveland’s Economic and Cultural Renaissance to be Spotlighted at All-Day Event Hosted by Cleveland-Marshall College of Law
Cleveland State University’s Cleveland-Marshall College of Law will host “Cleveland on the Rise: Fun, Food, Film and the Law,” on Friday, November 21, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The all-day program, sponsored by the Cleveland-Marshall Law Alumni Association, will focus on Cleveland’s economic and cultural renaissance and how laws and policy have helped shape the new cityscape, along with the legal challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
The day will be broken up into five panels – film, recreation, events, economic development and food – with a collection of several of the city’s finest attorneys, community leaders, artists and entrepreneurs speaking on Cleveland’s resurgence. Panelists include representatives from the Greater Cleveland Film Commission, Cleveland Metroparks, Gay Games Cleveland, Cleveland City Council, Cleveland Convention Center, and the City of Cleveland.
In addition, a special presentation will be delivered by Fred Nance, Regional Managing Partner of Squire Patton Boggs. Along with his duties at Squire Patton Boggs, Nance currently serves as Senior Advisor and Special Counsel of the Cleveland Browns, and on the boards of the Greater Cleveland Partnership, The Cleveland Foundation, and the Cleveland Clinic.
The event is open to the public and a $25 admission fee includes materials, continental breakfast, lunch and a reception following the program. Admission is free to students with a valid CSU ID and those seeking continuing legal education credits can receive six hours for an additional fee. All proceeds will benefit the Cleveland-Marshall Law Alumni Scholarship Fund.
