Alternative legal careers series starts Thursday

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indiana University Maurer School of Law's fall Career Choices series kicks off Thursday with a focus on using a law degree to work in the federal government.

Baker & Daniels attorney Suzanne O'Shea, who practices in health care and life sciences initiatives, will answer questions from a moderator and attendees about working in the federal government with a law degree. O'Shea worked for 21 years as a regulatory counsel for the Food and Drug Administration, as a product classification officer in the Office of Combination Products, and as regulatory counsel in the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. O'Shea is a 1978 graduate of the law school.

The session is from noon to 1 p.m. in Room 213 at the law school in Bloomington and is open to the public. Indiana law students need to RSVP because pizza will be provided to students.

This is the first of several sessions focusing on alternative legal careers. The series started in the spring in response to the tough job market and economy. Future scheduled sessions include family law/mediation, prosecutors, and legal aid/public defenders.

  1. I have had an ongoing custody case for 6 yrs. I should have been the sole legal custodial parent but was a victim of a vindictive ex and the system biasedly supported him. He is an alcoholic and doesn't even have a license for two yrs now after his 2nd DUI. Fast frwd 6 yrs later my kids are suffering poor nutritional health, psychological issues, failing in school, have NO MD and the GAL could care less, DCS doesn't care. The child isn't getting his ADHD med he needs and will not succeed in life living this way. NO one will HELP our family.I tried for over 6 yrs. The judge called me an idiot for not knowing how to enter evidence and the last hearing was 8 mths ago. That in itself is unjust! The kids want to be with their Mother! They are being alienated from her and fed lies by their Father! I was hit in a car accident 3 yrs ago and am declared handicapped myself. Poor poor way to treat the indigent in Indiana!

  2. The Indiana DOE released the 2015-2016 school grades in Dec 2016 and my local elementary school is a "C" grade school. Look at the MCCSC boundary maps and how all of the most affluent neighborhoods have the best performance. It is no surprise that obtaining residency in the "A" school boundaries cost 1.5 to 3 times as much. As a parent I should have more options than my "C" school without needing to pay the premium to live in the affluent parts of town. If the charter were authorized by a non-religious school the plaintiffs would still be against it because it would still be taking per-pupil money from them. They are hiding behind the guise of religion as a basis for their argument when this is clearly all about money and nothing else.

  3. This is a horrible headline. The article is about challenging the ability of Grace College to serve as an authorizer. 7 Oaks is not a religiously affiliated school

  4. Congratulations to Judge Carmichael for making it to the final three! She is an outstanding Judge and the people of Indiana will benefit tremendously if/when she is chosen.

  5. The headline change to from "religious" to "religious-affiliated" is still inaccurate and terribly misleading.
