The New Generation of Law: The DeNovo Review

By Denise Baker

How do you create a fresh perspective on age-old questions in law, leadership and professionalism? According to three third-year students at the University of Dayton School of Law that just launched The DeNovo Review blog, you do it yourself.

“We created The DeNovo Review to focus on issues important to the entire legal community, but through the lens of young attorneys and law students,” said Nadia Klarr, founder, author and editor-in-chief.

The mission of The DeNovo Review is to keep “legal professionals and students up-to-date with current law practices, news and professional development advice.” Klarr is joined by her two classmates, Travis Butchello and Michelle Sundgaard, who serve as authors and executive editors. All are expected to graduate in May.

The trio cover topics like  “Achieve Success Through Good Habits With A Five-Step Approach;” “A Third-Year's Perspective On Finding A Mentor;” “Women Leaders: Not Just One Of The Boys;” and “Choosing To Be Civil: A Guide For Young Professionals On Navigating Disagreement In Discourse.”

“We really wanted to create a forum to discuss the topics that are important to us, and others, not only as law students, but as we continue forward in our careers and endeavor to contribute to the legal profession,” said Klarr. “We plan to continue this undertaking into our own professional careers with an eye towards substantive issues in the law, as well as issues concerning branding, career development, leadership and professionalism.”

The team plans to carry on the University’s core mission to “Learn, Lead, Serve” after graduation by hosting an annual writing competition for Dayton Law students. The top three submissions will be featured on the site.

“This will not only provide an excellent opportunity for recognition of the students, but it will also serve to highlight the accomplishments that the School of Law fosters,” said Klarr.
