Kelly Claxton

Kelly Claxton is an international student passionate about getting involved. She is involved in SBA, Law Review, and the Library Committee and Street Law; is a research assistant; and is a teaching assistant. She appreciates the small size of ONU because of the level of exposure that students get. She is very proud of the work that she and her classmates do here and believes that the close-knit nature of the law community gives students at ONU an advantage over other schools. “Everyone always helps each other out – it’s a competitive school, but we all foster growth in individuals.”

Kelly believes that putting in extra time is the best way to learn the most from her professors. “Get involved – that is, I think, the most important thing in law school,” she says. "If people just put in the time and want to get involved, it would make the school so much better. When you get involved and you get to know people, then the staff, the faculty and other students are willing to help you. Students have to put in the time, be on campus and, most importantly, have fun with it. You can be a top student in your class, but getting involved can show potential employers another great side to you as well! When you start volunteering, people start asking you to do things, and it turns into easy networking.”
