Law had been the state college’s leader since 2010. Before that, he was a college president in Springfield, Illinois; The Woodlands, Texas; and in Tallahassee, as head of Tallahassee Community College. Law was replaced as president by Tonjua Williams, who had been the school’s Senior Vice President for student services.
The committee is “an advisory group of 12 citizens with varied interests and backgrounds who provide two-way communication between the state’s major citizen constituencies and the Bar’s Board of Governors,” a press release said.
“The committee also helps to inform and educate the public about significant legal-justice issues.”
The other new members are Ash Benzo, treasurer for the city of Fort Lauderdale; Maggie McGowan Davis, a licensed clinical social worker in Pensacola; Steven R. Maxwell, president and owner of Maxwell’s Sanibel Lime-elo, a Florida citrus company; and Lorene Wilson, a Tallahassee retiree.
The committee “meets three times a year, often in conjunction with Board of Governors meetings,” the release said.
