Student Organizations

Student organizations are a great way for students to serve the law school and the Cleveland community, grow personally and professionally, and network with attorneys and other persons who provide legal services.   Every year our student organizations change depending upon the interest level of our students; some grow, some become inactive, and new organizations develop.  The faculty and staff are here to help organizations thrive and achieve their missions.

For more information about our student organizations current students can review VikesConnect. You may also contact the Office of Student and Career Services at careernull@law.csuohio.nulledu.

National Association for Public Defense

Public Defenders face a completely different set of challenges than private criminal defense attorneys and prosecutors. The case loads are often much higher, and offices often lack resources which are available to other attorneys. This can cause many attorneys to “burn out” and leave the profession, exacerbating the crisis in indigent defense by depriving the field of much needed enthusiasm and numbers. Many students enter law school wanting to explore a career in indigent defense but are perhaps unaware or have little exposure to these challenges and are often taken by surprise when they enter the workplace. By providing a space for students interested in indigent defense to organize and learn, we hope to grow the number of students interested in public defense and connect them with meaningful opportunities to learn and hone skills necessary to be successful in a clerkship, externship, internship, and eventually a job.


National lawyers guild

Established in1937, the National Lawyers Guild (NLG) is the nation’s oldest and largest progressive bar association and was the first one in the U.S. to be racially integrated. Our mission is to use the law in service of the People, uniting lawyers, law students, legal workers, and jailhouse lawyers by valuing human rights and the rights of ecosystems over property interests. The NLG was formed to support the New Deal in answer to union busting, and fought directly against fascism both in the Spanish Civil War and to help prosecute Nazis in Nuremberg. The Guild was active during McCarthyism and vehemently fought throughout the Civil Rights movement, representing MLK Jr. and many Black Panther Party members including professor Angela Davis. The NLG represented the Chicago 7/8, defended strikers at Attica, and Indigenous protestors at Wounded Knee, helped expose the Iran-Contra scandal, and proudly supports the self-determination of Palestinians as we did those suffering under apartheid, South Africa. Today, the NLG has been integral to protecting the freedoms of dissenters standing against police brutality, particularly in our Legal Observer and Mass Defense Program, and has most recently stood in solidarity with the millions of abortion-seeking persons who have lost their fundamental right to personhood with the recent SCOTUS decision in Dobbs v Jackson to overturn Roe v Wade.

The purpose of this student chapter is to foster the education and development of future attorneys and the Cleveland State University community, in pursuit of zealous advocacy in defense of human rights and the rights of ecosystems over property interests.


Non-Traditional law student association

Non-traditional students, a group that includes part-time students working through school, "second-career" students, older students, parenting students and first-generation law students, face all the same obligations of traditional law students as well as additional sets of burdens and challenges that come with the responsibilities of life outside of law school. We at NTLSA want to provide support, networking opportunities, and a forum to address the unique concerns of this section of the student population.
