Public service is important to ONU law student Christian Woo. Christian came to ONU because of the University’s public service opportunities. ONU has given him the full law school experience while fostering personal success inside and outside of the classroom and courtroom. “I am proud to be a student at Ohio Northern University because this school has given me opportunities that I never would have had anywhere else,” he says.
Practicing his passion on campus, Christian has found his experience as managing editor of the ONU Law Review beneficial and believes the position has helped him grow professionally. “Since being appointed to that position, I feel that I have become a better leader through managing certain aspects of the organization and providing guidance to second-year staff editors during their editing rounds,” he says. Involvement in extracurricular activities has helped Christian build stronger relationships with the administration and faculty as well as his fellow peers.
Christian completed an externship at the United States Department of Defense’s Combating Trafficking in Persons program, where he had the opportunity to draft provisions to the Operational Law Handbook that will affect virtually all branches of the military. His positive experience there affirmed his decision to pursue a career there after graduation. Christian has already accepted a position as judge advocate in the United States Army Judge Advocate General Corps, otherwise known as J.A.G.
