Ohio Supreme Court Justice to participate in panel on Ohio Constitution

Ohio Supreme Court Justice Judith Ann Lanzinger, a 1977 alumna of The University of Toledo College of Law, will discuss the Ohio Constitution, the Modernization Commission, and possible changes to the constitution Thursday, March 17, at noon in the McQuade Law Auditorium in the Law Center on UT’s Main Campus

The free, public program is called “The Ohio Constitution and the Work of the Ohio Constitutional Modernization Commission.”

The Ohio Constitution is currently under review. The Ohio Constitutional Modernization Commission was established and tasked by the Ohio General Assembly with studying the constitution and recommending amendments. The commission began its work in 2013 and will continue until 2018.

The UT College of Law and the Toledo Bar Association will welcome some of the state’s leading experts on the subject to the University for the two-hour program.

In addition to Lanzinger, participants will include Marc Wagoner, a member of the Ohio Constitutional Modernization Commission and a partner at Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, LLP; Steven Hollon, executive director of the Ohio Constitutional Modernization Commission; and Steven Steinglass, senior policy adviser for the Ohio Constitutional Modernization Commission.

“The commission is performing an incredible service for the people of Ohio as well as for the legal profession, and yet many people remain unaware of this important work,” said Greg Gilchrist, UT associate professor of law and an event organizer.
