THE CASE FOR PETTIT

With the legal field constantly growing and adapting to meet new challenges, the role of lawyers is still vitally important. Here, you’ll define who you want to be as a lawyer – and build toward it. By the time you graduate, you’ll find that you are more prepared to enter the legal field than your peers because you’ll not only know the law but you’ll have the real-world experience to back it up.

We do this because we’re not just teachers but lawyers ourselves. We give you an experience- based legal education that provides the tools to go out into the world and make a difference – everywhere from the courtroom to the boardroom.

That means continually increasing the value of an ONU legal education through things like engaging speakers who shed light on current issues, clinical programs guaranteeing extensive live-client and courtroom hours, and advisors and mentors who, from day one, will continue to advocate for you long after you graduate.

Out here in Ada, Ohio– beyond the city lights – sits Ohio’s only rural law school

The village of Ada is a place where you can breathe and just be. The kind of place that, when you move away, you feel nostalgic for your entire life. Experience all that small-town living has to offer – the friendly people, the festivals, the varied restaurants and shops, and the memories that last a lifetime.
