Realizing one’s leadership potential is a lifelong endeavor, combining theoretical knowledge, practice, and applied skills. For Moritz students, the first step begins with intertwining leadership education with their law school curriculum and activities.
Through the Program on Law and Leadership, The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law equips students with the ability to pursue thoughtfully the demands of leadership that may be transferred to careers in or outside the practice of law. Integrating course work, guest speakers, workshops, and small-group discussions within Moritz’s traditional classroom structure, the program educates students in the theory, practice, and advancement of leadership and leadership skills. PLL students develop an appreciation for self-exploration and discovery, crucial to the lifelong learning approach necessary in effective leadership.
Moritz Electives and Interdisciplinary Options Students can also take several Moritz electives that further explore leadership and related issues. Additionally, law students may take up to five semester credit hours in course work from other colleges or departments at The Ohio State University, including leadership- related courses from the Fisher College of Business and the John Glenn School of Public Affairs.
