Please join us for an NIU Law Reception to honor Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA) President and alumnus Vincent Cornelius (’89). Cornelius makes history as he takes the helm of the ISBA, the state’s largest bar organization, and becomes the first African-American president in its 140-year history. Cornelius, principal of the Law Offices of Vincent F. Cornelius with offices in Wheaton and Joliet, concentrates his practice on civil and criminal litigation. A major focus of Cornelius’ year as president will be the future of young lawyers and preparing them for the profession.
The reception will be held on Wednesday, August 24, 2016, from 5-7 p.m., at the NIU College of Law in the Marshall Gallery. Complimentary cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be served. If you are interested in attending this event, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 815-753-8595.
