Student Profile: Incoming SBA President Jalela Jallaq

Cleveland State University College of Law 3L Student and incoming Student Bar Association President Jalela Jallaq knew that she wanted to become an attorney when she was 12 years old.  She credits this to growing up in a single parent household where she held extra responsibilities as a child and was exposed to many injustices in the world. This stayed with her, and she knew she wanted to work in a profession where she could help people and give back to the community.

Monday Morning Message 5.22.23 The Resilient Class of 2023

“Your education is a dress rehearsal for a life that is yours to lead.” – Nora Ephron 

Yesterday was our 2023 Commencement where we celebrated the accomplishments of one of the most resilient classes to ever graduate from our law school.

Early during their legal education, the world turned upside down.  The pandemic challenged the way we taught and the way they learned. Our graduates were forced to juggle the usual pressures of being a law student with a range of new and unexpected challenges, not of their making.

They adapted and excelled. I have no doubt that the unprecedented challenges they faced will make them even better lawyers and leaders.

Monday Morning Message 5.15.23 Your Moment of Truth

“A moment of choice is a moment of truth. It’s the testing point of our character and competence.” – Stephen Covey

Later today, at the invitation of the Ohio Supreme Court, I will have the honor of speaking in Columbus to all the law school graduates in Ohio and throughout the nation who passed the February 2023 Ohio Bar Exam. Here’s my message.

Three bricklayers were asked: “What are you doing?’ The first said, “I am laying bricks.” The second said, “I am building a cathedral.” The third said, “I am building a house of God.” The first bricklayer has a job. The second has a career. The third has a calling.  

Today I ask you to think beyond your job and career. I’m asking you to think about your calling.

Monday Morning Message 5.8.23 Your Law School For Life

“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.” - Seneca the Younger

“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” -Maya Angelou

This morning I want to share some positive messages I’ve recently received from graduates of the Class of 2o22 who passed the February 2023 Bar Exam and students who have recently been admitted to our law school. 

We are very proud that the way we treat our admitted students is the same way we treat our current students and our graduates – with respect, support, and individual attention.

Our message is “we are your law school for life.”

Monday Morning Message 5.1.23 Remember Your Why

“Try taking charge of your attention. Avert your gaze from whatever tempts you. Focus instead on whatever makes achieving your goals easier. Your future self will thank you for it.” – Angela Duckworth

“Pressure is a privilege - it only comes to those who earn it.” – Billie Jean King

My message this morning is to our students.

Today is Law Day. It’s also the first day of final exams.

If you’re looking for inspiration, you need look no further than what Law Day stands for. Ultimately, it’s what a legal education is all about.

Monday Morning Message 4.24.23 "Mr. Chief Justice, May It Please The Court

“Equal Justice under the law is not merely a caption on the facade of the Supreme Court building, it is perhaps the most inspiring ideal of our society.” – Former Supreme Court Justice Lewis Powell

In some years, through a very competitive application process, our law school is granted the privilege by the U.S. Supreme Court to host a small group of up to 12 lawyers for an official swearing-in ceremony in Washington D.C. for admission to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Monday Morning Message 4.17.23 Financial Wellness

Before you speak, listen. Before you write, think. Before you spend, earn. Before you invest, investigate. Before you criticize, wait. Before you pray, forgive. Before you quit, try. Before you retire, save. Before you die, give.” —William A. Ward

Last week I focused on our responsibility to take our students’ mental health challenges seriously and to promote a culture of wellness. There is another component to wellness that we also take very seriously – financial wellbeing.

Money is a major stressor for many of us, but particularly for law students who are trying to balance loan debt and other costs associated with attending law school as well as everyday living expenses.
