Monday Morning Message 2.26.24 We Believe in You

“The brick walls are there for a reason...they are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something."   - Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture

The Ohio Bar Exam is tomorrow and Wednesday. I want our most recent graduates, many of whom graduated last December, to know that we believe in them…… so I’ve taken the liberty of writing this brief message to them.

Serenity Prayer for CSU|LAW Bar Takers

God grant me the serenity to accept that I have prepared the best I can.

The courage to change from studying details to preparing my mind and body to breath, stay calm, and focus.

And the wisdom to know that this exam not only tests my knowledge, it tests my state of mind.

Taking each question one at a time.

Focusing on the moment, parking my worries and fears at the door, and visualizing success.

Accepting that the harder you want something, the greater you’ll feel when you achieve it.

Taking the bar exam as it is, not how I or others would have written it.

Trusting in my skills and surrendering to an unshakeable belief in myself.

Supremely happy that I am about to transition from learning law to living justice.

Amen.

Our highest priority is to provide our students with the resources to help them succeed in law school, pass the bar exam, and develop strong practice skills.

Increasingly, our students face unforeseen emergency expenses and financial burdens that prevent them from devoting the time and resources needed to prepare for this all or nothing exam. No student should be forced to choose between eating, paying rent, or studying.

Our May graduates will soon take the July 2024 Bar Exam. So I want to take this opportunity to ask for your support of our Williams/ McGinty Bar Passage Assistance Fund which helps our graduates overcome the financial costs of preparing for the Bar Exam.

Please give whatever you can here.

Thank you for your ongoing commitment to the success of our law students.

Because when our students succeed, our law school succeeds.

Have a great day. Have a great week.

The views and opinions expressed in my Monday Morning Message are solely my own and do not reflect the views and opinions of the law school or the university.

My best,

Lee
