Monday Morning Message 3.20.23 Our Masters of Law

“Our ability to reach unity in diversity will be the beauty and the test of our civilization.” – Mahatma Gandhi

“The world has only one border. It is called humanity. The differences between us are small compared to our shared humanity.” – Nadia Murad

While it is widely known that law schools offer a J.D. degree (Juris Doctor), many people are unaware of another law degree offered by some U.S. law schools: the LL.M. degree, an internationally recognized postgraduate law degree. LL.M. is an abbreviation of the Latin Legum ("of Laws") Magister (“Master”), or Master of Laws.

Monday Morning Message 2.27.23 Our Talent Dividend.

“If you hire people just because they can do a job, they’ll work for your money. But if you hire people who believe what you believe, they’ll work for you with blood and sweat and tears.” – Simon Sinek

At CSU|LAW, we have built the most reliable legal talent pipeline in Northeast Ohio for recruiting and educating students with a deep understanding of law, leadership, innovation, and emerging issues for our city, region, and nation. 

I call it our Talent Dividend.

Employers often tell us that what distinguishes our graduates from other law schools’ graduates is grit, perseverance, and work ethic.

Tuesday Morning Message 2.21.23 Believe You Can and You're Halfway There

“Believe you can and you’re halfway there.” – President Theodore Roosevelt

This message is being sent Tuesday morning because yesterday was President’s Day.

Today and tomorrow, a number of our recent graduates will be taking the February Ohio Bar Exam. I sent them the below message last week.

I want to send you this personal message of encouragement and support.

To some, the bar exam is a barrier to entry to the legal profession, but I prefer to see it as a gateway.

As Randy Pauch, author of The Last Lecture, wrote, “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."

Monday Morning Message 2.6.23 Lighting a Fire.

 Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire.” – William Butler Yeats

“I am not a teacher, but an awakener.” – Robert Frost

To paraphrase Yeats and Frost, law school isn't about filling a pail. It's about lighting a fire and awakening our students to new ways of thinking and new opportunities.

This morning, I’m pleased to share some recent emails I’ve received about the extraordinary teaching of our faculty and extraordinary student support provided by our staff. They light fires and awaken every day.

Tuesday Morning Message 1.17.23 Pay It Forward

"The student ambassadors, the alumni call from the Honorable Judge Michelle Paris, and the accepted student opportunities all made it feel like CSU Law wanted me to attend." – Admitted Student

“I so appreciate that you reached out to me personally. It confirms everything that I have heard from alumni and students about the supportive culture of the law school and its alumni network.”  - Admitted Student

This morning’s message is to our dedicated alumni and friends. I am asking you to be part of an aspiring lawyer’s journey by paying it forward.
