Winston-Salem Journal reports on opening of Smith Anderson Office of Community Outreach

The following story ran in the Nov. 8, 2015, Winston-Salem Journal here: Wake Forest University School of Law has opened the Smith Anderson Office of Community Outreach within the Worrell Professional Center.

The office houses the law school’s Pro Bono Project and Public Interest Law Organization, WFU said. The office’s opening was funded with a donation from the Raleigh law firm Smith Anderson and its attorneys.

“The lawyers of Smith Anderson have set high standards not only in the practice of law but also in service to their communities and to the organizations that enrich the lives of everyone,” said Suzanne Reynolds, the law school’s dean.

The firm has a long relationship with Wake Forest University. Smith Anderson attorneys and Wake Forest alumni Gerald Roach and Sarah Fox both serve in leadership roles with the university. Roach was recently elected vice chairman of the university’s board of trustees, and Fox serves on the law school’s board of visitors.
