Why Ohio State?

  • The curriculum at Ohio State places a heavy emphasis on experiential learning—providing opportunities for students to gain substantive hands-on experience well before graduation.

We have an outstanding curriculum here at Moritz. We offer a deep and broad range of upper level classes with a heavy emphasis on experiential learning.

My favorite thing about being part of the Buckeye Nation is the immense, genuine loyalty that the alumni network has to one another.

And so that allows us to offer some specialized classes through adjunct faculty, who are leading practitioners in their field, who can come in and impart their wisdom to our students as well.

I think that the education that we provide here at Ohio State University Moritz College of Law is a tremendous value. At this public law school, you have a stable faculty, who are all leading scholars in their fields.

Launching students into successful careers has been our core strategic focus for at least the past 10 years.

I am really proud of our legal writing program. We take care to give one-on-one attention to every single student. And I have told my students before that what we teach in legal writing, that's power. And at the same time, we have a nationally renowned Dispute Resolution program, where you have experts in the field and students able to get lots of learning, like through my negotiations class, where they're doing simulations and role plays every single week.

I have all the resources I need. I have a positive friendly culture. And I've always felt like I've been at the center of everything I want to be at here.
