Michelle Gearity (class of 2015) and Jim Cochran (class of 2012) founded the C|M Law Tax Alumni Group in October 2017. The C|M|Law Tax Alumni Group consists of C|M alumni who work in the tax area. Membership in the C|M|Law Tax Alumni Group provides an opportunity for alumni working in tax not only to keep in touch with each other but to be actively involved in the life of Cleveland-Marshall College of Law. Its members can be a rich resource for C|M students interested in pursuing a career in tax.
The C|M Law Tax Alumni Group hosted its inaugural event on Tuesday, February 6, called
“Careers in Tax.” Five members of the Group (Mia Witt of Calfee, Halter & Griswold, Jim Cochran of PwC, Rich Weinberg and Tom Vanik of FSM Capital Management, and Greg Gawlik of FirstEnergy) talked about what it’s like to practice tax in their setting and strategies for preparing for and obtaining jobs, followed by a reception.
C|M alums who practice in the tax area are encouraged to contact Professor Deborah Geier at firstname.lastname@example.org to add your name to the C|M Law Tax Alumni Group.
