Wayne Law Student Re-appointed to National ABA Committee

May 11, 2009

Solomon Radner

DETROIT (May 11, 2009) - Wayne State University Law School third-year student Solomon Radner was recently re-appointed as the student liaison to the American Bar Association's (ABA) White Collar Crimes Committee. Radner is the only student liaison to the White Collar Crimes Committee in the country, and is among only 64 law students nationwide chosen as 2009-2010 ABA student liaisons.

Radner, a resident of Oak Park, Mich., will serve a one-year term as student liaison, from August 2009 to August 2010.

"Solomon continues to demonstrate his impressive leadership skills and career potential to folks both here at the Law School and in the wider legal community," said Wayne Law Dean Robert M. Ackerman. "His re-appointment is an honor both to him and to the Law School. I congratulate him on his achievement."

In his first year as student liaison, Radner attended White Collar Crimes Committee meetings in New York City, Washington, D.C., and San Francisco. His report, titled "White Collar Crimes Committee Provides Guidance in Turbulent Times," was published in the April edition of the ABA's Student Lawyer magazine, a national publication.

This year, his duties will again include writing articles for the ABA Student Lawyer magazine, submitting reports, attending ABA meetings, and serving as liaison between the ABA and law students interested in a practice that focuses on white collar crime.

"I am honored that the ABA is willing to stick with me for another year," Radner said. "I am grateful for the opportunity to represent Wayne Law and law students nationally for another term."

According to the ABA, the student appointment process is very competitive due to the high volume of qualified applicants. Radner has worked for a local white collar criminal defense attorney firm, interned at the Federal Defenders Office in Detroit, and interned for Judge David Groner in the Wayne County Circuit Court, Criminal Division. He will be interning this summer at the Attorney Grievance Commission in Detroit.

Radner earned a bachelor's degree in Talmudic Law from the Yeshiva College of the Nation's Capital. He expects to graduate from Wayne Law in 2010.
