A professional association fostering
the profession of law among individuals
of Irish ancestry.
On July 3, 2013, 27 Cleveland lawyers of Irish
descent joined together to form the Irish American
Law Society of Cleveland.
In forming the group, we were building on a tradition started by the law firm of Collins & Scanlon, which has brought visiting legal dignitaries from Ireland for St.Patrick’s Day each year since 1998 and gathered Cleveland’s legal community to welcome and honor them.
We seek to promote closer affiliations between the bench, the bar, students of law, and the community, and to further a hight standard of legal ethics. The Society provides a forum for educational, cultural and social activites concerning Irish heritage and tradition.
Immigration attorney Erin Brown, Partner, Brown Immigration Law and Judge Laura Gallagher will present on immigration law.
Erin will discuss immigration laws that existed when many of our ancestors came to the U. S. and compare those laws with the current immigration laws. Judge Gallagher will give a brief reflection on her recent trip to the border in El Paso, Texas and her experience in Juarez, Mexico.
We will submit a request for a one hour CLE credit for this presentation.
