Monday Morning Message 4.15.24 Lift Someone Up

"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." – African Proverb

"If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else." – Booker T. Washington

Not a week goes by when I don’t receive a positive message about the excellent work of our remarkable staff. Their talent, work ethic, and dedication to our law school continue to amaze me. They lift up our students and faculty every day. I’m pleased to share some of the emails I’ve received in recent months.

Monday Morning Message 4.7.24 The Sky is No Longer the Limit

“A total solar eclipse is not something that you see — it’s something that you experience.” - Astrophysicist and eclipse chaser Ryan Milligan describing what it’s like to experience an eclipse in the New York Times.

“Keep your face to the sun, and you will never see the shadows.”  - Helen Keller

Monday Morning Message 4.1.24 The Secret to Getting Ahead

“The secret to getting ahead is getting started.”  - Mark Twain

This is a message to our students who will graduate in less than 60 days. The Ohio Bar Exam is not until July 2024, so it may be surprising to some that this morning’s message is about preparing for that exam. But the 2-day exam is probably the most difficult test you’ll ever take, the stakes are high, and there isn’t much time between graduation in May and the bar exam in July.

It’s not too early to prepare. Studying for the bar exam is a marathon, not a sprint. There are no shortcuts.

Monday Morning Message 3.11.24 Our Faculty's Fingerprints

“Our fingerprints don't fade from the lives we touch.”  - Judy Blume

 Not a week goes by when I don’t receive a positive message about the extraordinary teaching of our faculty. I’m pleased to share emails I’ve received these past few months. Our faculty’s fingerprints will never fade from the lives they’ve touched.

Monday Morning Message 3.4.24 Democracy Awakening

“Today’s crisis in democracy has brought us back to the same question that haunted the Founders: are the principles on which this nation was founded viable? Is it really possible to create a country in which everyone is equal before the law and entitled to have a say in their government, or are some people better than others and thus have the right- and the duty – to rule? ”  - Heather Cox Richardson, Democracy Awakening: Notes on the State of America

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.

Monday Morning Message 2.19.24 27 Presidents

"I desire so to conduct the affairs of this administration that if at the end, when I come to lay down the reins of power, I have lost every other friend on earth, I shall at least have one friend left, and that friend shall be down inside me." – President Abraham Lincoln

With all due respect to America’s doctors, dentists, nurses, engineers, architects, and business executives, no profession is more responsible for producing America’s local, state, and national leaders than the legal profession.

No profession is more common among U.S. Presidents and among those who founded our country.

Monday Morning Message 2.12.24 A Law Degree That Fits Your Life and Jumpstarts Your Future.

“I imagine getting this program up and running has been a monumental lift, so I wanted to make sure you heard from me saying thank you. It would be difficult for me to be going to law school in person, given my circumstances and where I live, so this opportunity has been and is very important to me…..I want to thank all the folks who have worked tirelessly to pull this program together so that people like me can have an opportunity to study the law. – Student, CSU|LAW J.D. online part-time program
