Rentezelas will speak to students on the Harrisburg campus about the world of financial regulation and job opportunities for attorneys in the field.

"Jeanne Rentezelas will talk about her career in an area of the law that students may not have yet considered for practice – financial regulation,” says Associate Professor Jill E. Family, adding, “Not only is this area of the law a hot topic in the news, but Jeanne will also share career planning advice with students interested in practicing in this area."

Jeanne R. Rentezelas was appointed as Vice President and General Counsel for the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia in June of 2010. Previously, she served as counsel at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) in Washington, D.C. Prior to joining the FDIC, Rentezelas practiced with Stradley Ronon Stevens & Young, LLP, in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, where she advised financial institutions on financial regulatory matters. A graduate of Cornell University, she earned her J.D. from Rutgers University School of Law.

Free pizza will be served at the event, and interested students are encouraged to attend.
