Coastal Carolina University has established a new lecture series, "Meet the Law," designed to complement the business law courses offered through the E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration. The purpose of the lectures is to give students the opportunity to meet and interact with practicing legal professions who work in the judicial or regulatory system at the national, state or local level.

The inaugural speaker in the program was M. Owen Donley III, chief counsel for the Office of Investor Education and Advocacy with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). He spoke on April 21 to 220 students, including all six sections of business law and selected accounting and finance classes.

Donley, a graduate of the University of South Carolina and the Vanderbilt University Law School, spoke to students about securities law and regulation principles. He joined the SEC in 2004.

"Students gain valuable insights through contact with those working in the fields they're studying," said Edgar Dyer, CCU's executive vice president and chief operating officer. "It supplements their classroom experience and starts them thinking about career choices." The program was created by Wall College business law faculty members Henry Lowenstein and Andy Hendrick, who plan to invite one guest lecturer per semester. The lectures are open only to Wall College of Business students.

For more information contact Henry Lowenstein at 349-2827 or hlowenst@coastal.edu.
