Laska has patent on perpetual learning

Wisconsin Law Journal

Michael Best Attorney Casimir F. Laska was featured in the Wisconsin Law Journal article "Laska has patent on perpetual learning" on September 25, 2015.

Casimir Laska isn’t your typical student studying computer security and networking at Waukesha County Technical County. That’s because he’s also a patent attorney at Michael Best.

“A lot of the other students don’t even know what a patent attorney is,” he said. “I’m definitely an unusual student, but it’s been fun and being around young people.”

Laska initially retired from Michael Best in 2010 to spend more time with his then-preteen daughter, driving her to extracurricular activities and helping with homework. During his retirement, he started taking classes at WCTC.

“I’ve always been interested in technology and wanted to know more but never had time to take classes,” he said.

As his daughter got older, Laska’s time freed up and he returned to practicing law earlier this year.

“I’m still taking classes and my practice is now focused more in the areas I studied,” he said. “I’m putting into practice what I learned.”
