Touro Law Center's Office of Development, Alumni Relations and Communications is proud to announce that Anthea des Etages has been selected as the alum of the month for November 2011. Ms. des Etages is a leader in her profession, was an active member of the Touro Law community while attending law school, and speaks to current and prospective law students. Her accomplished career is highlighted in the bio below. On behalf of the entire law school community, we extend our congratulations to Anthea des Etages.
