ABA President to Visit Law School

American Bar Association President Karen Mathis will attend a luncheon and reception at Seattle University School of Law Wednesday, April 4. Mathis is the keynote speaker at the Washington State Bar Association’s Youth at Risk Summit, which will be held on the Seattle University campus.

Dean Kellye Testy will lead a luncheon discussion on children and the law with Mathis, State Bar President Ellen Dial and other dignitaries before the summit. The WSBA and the law school will welcome her to a reception at Sullivan Hall at the conclusion of the day.

“It’s an honor to welcome Karen Mathis to the law school and to have the opportunity to talk to her about critical issues facing our youth,” Dean Kellye Testy said.

Mathis has long been an advocate youth, serving on the Colorado Commission on Child Care and as a member of the Mile Hi Council of Girl Scouts. She has spoken on five continents about the future of the law and women’s place in the profession. She is a partner in the Denver office of McElroy, Deutsch, Mulvaney & Carpenter, LLP, with 30 years’ experience in business and commercial law and estate planning.

A member of the Colorado and International Women’s Forums, Mathis has been honored as an outstanding lawyer by the Denver and Colorado Bar Associations, the University of Colorado and the University of Albany School of Law.
