Michael Solender ’89 To Discuss Law Careers March 29
On Thursday, March 29, Michael Solender ’89, General Counsel of The Bear Stearns Companies, will give a talk as part of the Dean’s Program on the Profession series. It will take place at 5:00 p.m. in the Alumni Reading Room and is free and open to the public. Solender’s topic will be “Careers in the Law—The Law Firm, Government, and In-House Perspective.”
“Students are not going to be senators or Supreme Court justices right after graduation,” said Solender. “Instead, they have some choices to make and they have to educate themselves as much as they can right now about those choices.”
Prior to joining Bear Stearns in 2002, Solender was a partner at the Washington, D.C.-based law firm of Arnold & Porter, specializing in litigation and regulatory matters. In 2000 and 2001, he served as the General Counsel of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, a federal government agency charged with protecting the public from dangerous products. There, he received the Chairman’s Award for distinguished service and oversaw a number of matters that received national attention.
Solender holds a B.A. from Columbia University and a J.D. from Yale Law School, where he was a Senior Editor of the Yale Law Journal.
“Mr. Solender has had a splendid career and has achieved prominence at an early age. His talk should be most illuminating,” said Yale Law School Dean Harold Hongju Koh.
