King Hall Reception at L.A.’s 10e

Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, Jul 20, 2017

On Tuesday, our Career Services and Admissions offices held a joint reception in downtown Los Angeles at 10e, a restaurant co-owned by Mark Geragos, the criminal defense lawyer famous for having represented several celebrity clients.

Career Services planned the event to connect students working in the Los Angeles area this summer with Southern Cal-based alumni, and Admissions wanted to hold a reception for admitted students in the area, so they pooled resources and wound up hosting a terrific reception that was thoroughly enjoyed by the two dozen students, admits, and alums who attended.

Craig Compton, Assistant Dean for Career Services, and other staff were on hand to network with five decades’ worth of alumni including Bill Mantle ’74, a retired and dedicated alum, Ron Maroko ’86, a trial attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice, Russell Naymark ’98, in-house counsel for the American Federation of Musicians, Peter Kim ’05, a principal at PwC, Roya Ladan ‘12, a law clerk for Judge Gail Standish in the CDCA, and Gregg Bernhard ’94, a partner at Seyfarth Shaw, among others.  Everyone was enthusiastic about helping students and recent graduates make connections with potential employers in their fields. 

The event was a great opportunity for King Hall community members to mingle and get to know one another, and everyone in attendance enjoyed the positive vibes and networking opportunities.  Thanks to everyone who helped make this possible!
