Invest In Our Future



Message from Dean Richard Bales -

These are exciting times at ONU Law.  We’ve recruited a strong class of students this year, and our graduates continue to excel at passing the bar exams and getting solid J.D.-required jobs.  Our LLM program is attracting students and having a significant impact on rule-of-law initiatives all over the world.  Our faculty are committed to an everyone-knows-your-name approach to law teaching and have developed a curriculum nationally recognized for its innovation.  With the strong support of the University, we have rolled back tuition to levels that make legal education at ONU Law more affordable than ever.

But like the proverbial tree falling in the forest, these great things will only get us so far without your help spreading the good news and building on our success.  We are committed to enhancing the value of your ONU Law degree.  Your investment in ONU Law’s future will help us do that.
