For more than 130 years, ONU Law has been devoted to preparing students for legal practice. While the world and our college have evolved since ONU Law was founded in 1885, our commitment to strong graduate outcomes remains unchanged.
Strong Graduate Outcomes
The ultimate goal of every law student is to pass the bar exam. At ONU Law, we are proud of our graduates’ success on the bar exam, not only in Ohio but across the country. In fact, we were one of the first schools in the U.S. to integrate a bar-prep course for academic credit into our third-year curriculum. Following the July 2019 exam, Ohio Northern University Pettit College of Law ranks first among Ohio law schools for first-time bar passage. Every ONU Law student taking the bar for the first time passed, resulting in a 100 percent bar passage rate.
