Discover the ONU Law Difference
Message from Dean Bales
ONU Law is truly unique. Our history, location, and sense of community are merely pieces of what make up the ONU Law difference. If you’re looking for a large urban environment for legal study, ONU Law is not the place for you. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a place where everyone knows your name, with faculty and staff who care deeply about your success, and a curriculum nationally recognized for its innovation, you should consider joining the ONU Law family.
DEFINING THE ONU LAW DIFFERENCE…
As a 21st century law student, you are looking for an entirely different experience in law school. You expect your legal education experience to be dynamic, high-impact, and meaningful. A legal education should provide a strong foundation of legal theory while teaching the skills needed to hit the ground running. A legal education should help you build a diverse network of friends and colleagues across the globe. Most importantly, a legal education should provide faculty, mentors, and advisors who challenge and support you every single day. The educational experience defines the ONU Law difference.
At ONU Law, we are committed to your success. Though we are a small school, we have one of the strongest academic support programs in the country. We have two full-time academic support directors, faculty mentors who know your individual aspirations and who will help you attain them, and an extensive bar prep program. Our commitment to you is not just rhetoric – ONU Law students pass the bar and get incredible jobs. Our bar pass rate in Ohio is consistently first or second, and was 100% in February 2013 and 91% in July 2013. Our nine-month employment rate is consistently above the national average, and for the last two years we have placed 2nd in the state for students getting jobs where a J.D. degree is required – not just preferred. Student success defines the ONU Law difference.
Just as you are looking for a different kind of law school, we are looking for a different kind of law student. We want students whose backgrounds demonstrate a strong work ethic. We want students who “play well with others” and can work in a team environment. We want students with a diverse array of backgrounds and experiences that will enhance the learning environment of the ONU Law community. You are not an LSAT number when you apply, and you’re not a number when you arrive. Our students define the ONU Law difference
As Dean, I intend to be readily available to every student. If you have questions or concerns I can help address throughout the application process, feel free to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. You also can locate me on Facebook by searching ONU Law Dean. I look forward to welcoming you to the ONU Law community.
Dean, College of Law
