Dean’s Greeting

Whether you are a prospective student, returning alumnus, or a community member attending one of our many educational programs, welcome to The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law.

We are proud to be part of the incredible Ohio State community. At the Moritz College of Law, we are focused on making a difference in the world, a world increasingly infused with law and legal issues. Through our award-winning teaching, nationally recognized scholars, and extraordinary alumni, the college has an impact far beyond these walls.

Yet, perhaps our greatest asset is our student body. Our students come from various backgrounds, perspectives, states, and nations, but they share an appetite for academic challenge and a desire to contribute to their organizations, communities, and society. The ways our current students affect change through participation and creation of cutting-edge programs are a constant inspiration to our dedicated faculty and staff.

Whether you are here with us for one day or three years, I truly hope you enjoy your time at Moritz and get to know better our community – phenomenal and collegial like no other.

Alan C. Michaels
Dean and Edwin M. Cooperman Professor of Law
