The Solo Practice Incubator celebrates its Five Year Anniversary!
Cleveland-Marshall College of Law has a longstanding track record of educating great lawyers and great lawyers are often called upon to serve as influential leaders in our society. However, lawyers typically have little training in leadership. Recognizing that skills training gap, Kelly Tompkins ’81 and C|M|LAW Dean Lee Fisher created the P. Kelly Tompkins Leadership and Law Program.
Cleveland attorney and business leader P. Kelly Tompkins has made a $750,000 gift to his alma mater, Cleveland-Marshall College of Law at Cleveland State University, to establish a substantive leadership education program for law students.
Cleveland State University’s Cleveland-Marshall College of Law had the highest passage rate for first-time takers of the July Ohio Bar Exam. The school’s passage rate was 93%, well above the state average of 79%.
This is the second consecutive Ohio Bar Exam in which C|M|LAW had the top passage rate, following its 82 percent pass rate for the February 2018 exam.
