Office of Career and Professional Development

The Office of Career and Professional Development is dedicated to helping all law students in every aspect of their job search, regardless of their career aspirations or background. The goal of our office is to support each law student as he or she transitions to an employed professional. We strive to meet the employment interests of each student through individualized counseling, networking opportunities, online resources and supportive alumni.  

Our graduates have successful careers in all areas of law, including in large, medium, small and solo firms; public interest groups; corporations; higher education; and government offices and agencies such as JAG programs, the Secret Service and the FBI. We have alumni in all 50 U.S. states and 26 countries.

We value the relationships we have developed and continue to develop with employers in all legal areas. We are confident that our graduates, through the education received at the Ohio Northern University Claude W. Pettit College of Law, are well-prepared to contribute and succeed from day one.  

ONU Law alumni are always welcomed back. We appreciate the loyalty of ONU law graduates and their desire to give back in a multitude of ways, including participating in events designed to enhance the learning experience of current students and letting us know of job opportunities. We also are pleased to work with alumni should they decide to seek out other employment opportunities.  

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about the topics covered on our website or anything not covered within.
