The rapid growth of the private space industry has increased the demand for space lawyers trained in the complex international and domestic aspects of space law and policy.  Cleveland-Marshall College of Law is addressing this need for lawyers trained in space law by launching the Global Space Law Center (GSLC), the first law school research center in the United States dedicated exclusively to the study of the law of outer space.

Cleveland-Marshall College of Law Professor Candice Hoke has announced her retirement from C|M|LAW after 30 years as a law professor, including the past 23 years at Cleveland-Marshall.  Hoke is stepping away to concentrate on developing more robust cybersecurity and privacy practices, including improving election cybersecurity in advance of the 2018 elections.

One of the most significant employers of recent graduates are “small firms.” These firms are giving freshly minted C|M|LAW lawyers major opportunities for growth while working on cases from almost their very first day.

“Small firms” are defined by C|M|LAW’s Career Planning Office as those employing between two and 10 full-time attorneys.  On average, approximately one-fifth of C|M|LAW graduates have secured their initial post-graduate, full-time, long-term employment as attorneys in small firms throughout Northeast Ohio.

On August 24, members of the C|M|LAW community gathered for an open conversation about the recent protests and civil unrest that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The conversation was led by U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio Judge Dan Polster, Dean Lee Fisher and Professors David Forte and Kevin O’Neill.
