Husch Blackwell welcomed Julie Miceli as partner to its Chicago office on October 3, 2016.
A member of the firm's Healthcare, Life Sciences & Education industry team, Miceli served as in-house counsel at a major private research institution prior to joining Husch Blackwell. She also served as the deputy general counsel for higher education and federal student aid at the U.S. Department of Education, and prior to that, as the chief of staff and special counsel to the General Counsel for that agency. She began her practice as assistant attorney general in the Education Section of the Ohio Attorney General’s office, providing legal counsel to the state’s public colleges and universities, two state Boards and a commission, before going in to private practice representing educational institutions.
“We are thrilled that Julie has chosen to join our team,” said Derek Teeter, partner in the firm’s Higher Education practice. “She has deep experience and contacts in the higher education industry and will be a valuable resource for our college and university clients—especially those that face regulatory audits and enforcement actions from the U.S. Department of Education.”
Miceli is familiar with matters relating to Title IX, Clery and Violence Against Women Acts, campus safety, serving minors, student aid, Title IV compliance, litigation, contracts, employment, accreditation, fundraising and endowment. She has delivered numerous lectures on legal topics in higher education.
Miceli obtained her J.D. from The Ohio State University, Moritz College of Law (2004) and her B.S. cum laude from Ohio University (2001).
