The board is composed of attorneys Jerrold Abramowitz, Richard Bash, Susan Williams, and Patrick Brown; Greg Kranz, who is in the information technology field; and Sonja Brown, a business owner and part-time legal assistant. Mark Montefiori is the founder and director of the law school with 13 years of experience in higher education. There is also an informal network of individuals acting as advisors.
The informational meeting, which is open to the public, is at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 29 at the Marriott Springhill Suites, 11855 N. Meridian St., Carmel.
Raising seed money for a feasibility study is the board's immediate goal. It is also in the process of changing its formal structure from for-profit to non-profit.
"Not only will it enable individuals and organizations to donate dollars as a tax-deductible contribution but also will allow us to better utilize our resources to more fully accomplish our mission," Montefiori said.
For more information about the proposed school or to attend meetings, people should e-mail Montefiori at firstname.lastname@example.org, with their name and contact information for follow-up. The board is planning another meeting for November, and an event is tentatively being planned for December.
The school's Web site, will have more information regarding the law school and upcoming events as it becomes available.
