Success by Association

More than two-thirds of ONU Law’s students come from outside Ohio, and from here, they go on to all 50 U.S. states and around the world. We may be a small school, but we have a big network of loyal alumni who stay engaged long after they graduate. Alumni turn into career resources for our current students, becoming advisors, donors, speakers and recruiters. Come to ONU Law, and you'll understand what it means to be part of a tight-knit family that takes care of its own.

“Ohio Northern’s nationwide network of graduates has been a great resource. Alumni actively seek ONU Law grads for case referrals in different geographic locations or practice areas. We also look to promote our own, hiring ONU students and graduates whenever possible – precisely how I landed my current job in my home state of Wisconsin after being away from 10 years.”

“The ONU Law faculty is always willing to work with you as a student. They were always there when I needed them. Moreover, they helped introduce me to other alumni in the various fields I wanted to go into. The people I’ve met and the friends I’ve made are unforgettable.”

“One of the most helpful components I recall is how ONU Law, through my professors and advisor, really focused on ensuring that I took classes that would show up on my state-specific bar exam.”
