Law clerk providing
pro bono assistance at IASB

Shanell Bowden will be working as a law clerk for IASB this fall. She is a graduate of The Ohio State University’s Moritz College of Law, in Columbus, Ohio, and is originally from the Chicago area.

In addition to her law degree, Bowden has received certificates in Children’s Studies and Alternative Dispute Resolution. She was granted an Excellence for the Future Award in Dispute System Design Workshop from the Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI), a non-profit consortium of law schools that conducts applied research and development in the area of computer-mediated legal education. CALI member law schools can opt to give such awards to the students who have the highest scores in individual law school courses.

She will work with IASB until the end of October and attend the Illinois Council of School Attorneys seminar at the Joint Annual Conference in November, providing IASB with 150 hours of pro bono work in the office of the general counsel.
