Anesi Ozmon Rodin Novak & Kohen, LTD. partnered with the non-profit Center for Companies That Care, to host a group of Chicago Public School students participating in a career awareness program. The program exposes students to a diverse range of careers and industries during a four-week period of the summer. The students visiting Anesi Ozmon all expressed an interest in law careers.

“This type of program has great meaning to Anesi Ozmon,” said Mark Novak, President/Managing Partner at Anesi Ozmon. “Many of our partners, including myself, began here when we were still in law school. We understand the impact that mentoring can have on young adults, and we appreciate the opportunity to share our firm’s history and values with this wonderful group of students.”
During the program, students learned about the differences between the civil and criminal justice system and the work that Anesi Ozmon does in Workers Compensation and Personal Injury Law. They also participated in a hands-on exploration of an actual case, dividing into Plaintiff and Defense teams, conducting discovery, and developing arguments.
“This was an impressive group of students,” said Partner Michael Teich. “They actively participated, asked great questions, and really showed off their critical thinking skills during the hands-on case exploration. It was a great opportunity for us to share our passion for the law and our own career paths with the next generation of bright and engaged students.”
