Tyler Lane came to ONU to help others. He is involved in Law Review, which has been an incredibly wonderful and rewarding experience. “I like getting to work with different authors and legal scholars to help them out,” he says. He also helps give campus tours to prospective students. He enjoys sharing his experiences with students to help alleviate the stress that comes when young people are trying to figure out what they want to do with their lives. “I’m able to help teach classes, and I’m able to be a part of working with some big-time authors here,” he says. "For such a small school, you wouldn’t think that would be possible, but we’re able to get that tight-knit feel and still be able to explore a variety of exciting opportunities.”
Tyler believes that one of the program’s strengths is its supportive community. “Everyone around here, including the students, is willing to help you.” He is very thankful for the personalized attention and open-door policy of the professors, which have helped him find his footing in the program. After graduation, Tyler wants to work for a small- or mid-sized firm and plans on volunteering his services to help underprivileged children and animals pro bono.
