Moving Forward: Positioning Cuyahoga County for Recovery
Alumni Weekend Panel
OCT 15, 2011
10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Moot Courtroom (A59)
CLE Credit
Approved for 1.5 hours of in-person CLE credit
For at least the past two decades, Cuyahoga County has failed to compete effectively in a rapidly changing global arena. The reasons are many: lack of clear accountability; lack of a long-term strategic plan; corruption; and failure to coordinate the talents of all potential partners, including non-profits, businesses, academic leaders, labor leaders, and 57 cities and suburbs. Corruption is now a game of the past, thanks to the leadership of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Ohio. Early signs suggest investments in innovation are bearing fruit, but the area still needs strategic vision, partnerships, a welcome mat for new businesses and jobs, and political support for leaders willing to take a risk to move the County forward.

1.5 hours continuing legal education credit, pending approval.

At one-hour CLE activities, Ohio Supreme Court regulations require attorneys to be present for the entire hour to obtain credit. Therefore, registration for one-hour lectures will close at the time the event is scheduled to start. Everyone is welcome to attend the lecture, but we cannot submit CLE credit for late arrivals.

At events longer than one hour, we will submit credit based on an attorney’s arrival time and duration of attendance, but no less than the minimum of one full hour of attendance.

We encourage attendees to arrive at registration 20 minutes prior to the start of a lecture to sign in, obtain materials, and be seated.


There is no law school parking, however, public parking, for a fee, is available in the Cleveland Botanical Garden parking underground garage. Also, meter parking might be available.

Recording in any form is prohibited.
