Columbus School of Law Dean Veryl Miles gave an inspiring Law and Leadership address at Hamline on February 28. Her speech, "Pro Bono Services" A Professional Responsibility with an Abundant Yield," described the Legal Services Society Project underway at Columbus School of Law that encourages all law students at the school to participate in pro bono activities as students and, later, as full-time legal professionals.

"Law schools need to plant seeds of compassion and community commitment," she said. "This will lead to an abundant yield." Dean Miles also praised Minnesota's impressive record of pro bono activities by law students through the Minnesota Justice Society. View a recording of Dean Miles' Law & Leadership presentation.
