Kimberly Despas

WLFC Law School Rep (OSU), 2018-19

I am currently a third-year law student at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, with an interest in Labor and Employment, Intellectual Property, Estate Planning, ADR, Merger & Acquisitions, and Litigation, and continue to be open to a number of practice areas. I am excited to say that I have been a WLFC board member since my first year of law school, in addition to actively participating in the Women’s Legal Society at Ohio State. Beginning in undergraduate school at the University of California, Berkeley, I have continuously pursued my passion for research, writing a number of sociological papers that analyze the complexity of different social constructs, and conducting my own ethnographic study in 2013. Currently a Managing Editor for the Ohio State Journal on Dispute Resolution, I look forward to promoting the academic and professional development of Staff Editors, enhancing my legal writing skills, and continuing my research in attorney-client relationships, ultimately contributing to the field of ADR and the legal community as a whole.
