Mary NienaberMary Nienaber has been an enormous asset to LASC, particularly while previously serving in her role as Pro Bono Coordinator for Capital University Law School. Under Mary’s leadership, the number and range of Capital Law students participating in pro bono drastically increased. Because of Mary’s efforts, students have stepped up to offer assistance with Brief Advice & Referral Clinics, the Bankruptcy Bypass clinics, PACO Wills clinics, and the Chapter 7 Pro Bono referrals. Shawn Beem, Director of Professional Development noted, “Mary was an exceptional pro bono coordinator at Capital. She took a program of a few participants and turned it into a respected program that only continues to grow. We have big shoes to fill at Capital.”

Mary has always been committed to serving the legal needs of our low-income community. Prior to taking her position with Capital, she spent countless hours volunteering in-house at LASC and worked as a law clerk for the LASC housing team during law school.

We are grateful for all of the work she has done and know she will continue to do great things in her future endeavors. There is no question the Columbus pro bono community has lost a strong leader, and she will be greatly missed!
