Alumni Attorneys Share Legal Insights with Class of 2019
Class of 2007 members Ro Marchese and Jake Grollman returned to Out-of-Door for a live version of Ask Jake, Ask Ro, the advice column they wrote in the school newspaper when they were students.
Ms. Marchese is an assistant public defender and Mr. Grollman is a private criminal defense attorney.
The alums met with the Issues of Contemporary Society classes–all seniors–and engaged in multi-faceted discussions about adulthood. They talked extensively about what it means to turn 18 and be an adult in the United States, and what your rights, privileges, and responsibilities are when you become an adult. The two attorneys also addressed a variety of topics centered around the law including human rights, the role of law in politics, and the U.S. legal system. The conversations were engaging and thought-provoking, during which the members of the Class of 2019 asked, as well as answered, probing questions. After the sessions, the seniors all agreed that they are looking forward to the next installment of Ask Jake, Ask Ro.
