Pathways to Excellence
ONU Law understands that you may wish to focus your studies on one of these emerging areas within the legal profession: health care, education, intellectual property or immigration. That's why we've developed Pathways.
Pathways are recommended sets of courses, clinics and externships, and relationships with faculty mentors that ONU Law believes will help students craft a path to a career in specific areas of law. New Pathways might be developed by the ONU Law faculty based on student interest or by identifying areas of law that we believe will become important in the future. No matter your interest, you'll work with a faculty advisor to personalize your course of study. In addition to clinics and externships, the Office of Career Services is available to help you find summer internships within your Pathway's area of focus.
