the rule change, the following can be jointly attributed to OSBA President
Ronald Kopp and OWBA President Lisa Kathumbi:
no way should the frequent moves and mission reassignments inherent in the
career of a soldier, sailor, airman or Marine hinder their spouse’s ability to

families and look forward to working collaboratively to ensure military spouse
attorneys can connect with the legal community through future mentorship and
networking opportunities.” The
Ohio State Bar Association, founded in 1880, is a voluntary association
representing approximately 28,000 members of the bench and bar of Ohio. Through
its activities and the activities of its related organizations, the OSBA serves
both its members and the public by promoting the highest standards in the
practice of law and the administration of justice. The
mission of the Ohio Women’s Bar Association is to promote the leadership,
advancement and interests of women attorneys through professional education,
networking, and the exchange of ideas.
