JD ’18, Attorney at Huffman, Kelley, Brock & Gottschalk in Lima, OH
Shelby Core is an undergraduate alumna of ONU who decided to return to campus to pursue a career in law. She wanted to be an attorney from a young age, drawn to the constantly changing landscape that lawyers must navigate. “You get to meet different people and hear different problems,” she says. “It’s different every day.” She is thankful for the outreach that the College of Law offers because she was able to meet and work with clients while still committed to her education. “I get to apply what I learn here to the real world,” she says. Her involvement in the Student Bar Association, the Agricultural Law Society, and serving as a student representative on the curriculum committee exposed her to different aspects of the law. “You’re developing your understanding of the law each year,” she says.
Her time in the college was challenging in many aspects, but she appreciates the ability to look back and see everything she accomplished. “The best piece of advice that I’ve been given,” she says, “is to go where you think that you’re going to be the most successful. To me, I know that was Ohio Northern.”
