DeWines Participate in Q&A Session with Teen Leaders

Teens from across Ohio received an inside look into law and government this week after question-and-answer sessions with Ohio Supreme Court Justice R. Patrick DeWine and Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine.

Father and son spoke at the Thomas J. Moyer Ohio Judicial Center, home of the Supreme Court.

Justice DeWine shared his background and his path to the Supreme Court. He also explained the process for appealing a case to the Supreme Court. Attorney General DeWine similarly shared his public service career experience.

“I enjoy engaging with students and discussing our judicial system,” Justice DeWine said. “And it is rewarding and beneficial to hear the perspective of our young Ohio leaders.”

Members of the Attorney General’s Teen Ambassador Board serve one-year terms and meet twice annually in Columbus.

Justice DeWine began his six-year term on the Supreme Court on Jan. 2. Previously, Justice DeWine served on the First District Court of Appeals and on the Hamilton County Common Pleas Court. Before becoming a judge, Justice DeWine practiced law at the Cincinnati law firm of Keating, Muething & Klekamp, PLL and served as a Hamilton County Commissioner and Cincinnati City Council member. He is also an adjunct professor at the University of Cincinnati at the College of Law and in the Political Science Department.
