Partnerships & Collaboration

CollabPartnership_HeaderThe Program on Law and Leadership experience is inherently collaborative. One of the goals of the program is to provide opportunities to partner with other units across campus that also have leadership as part of their curriculum. The Fisher College of Business and the Glenn School of Public Affairs are just some of the entities integrated¬† to ensure that the PLL students benefit from the rich resources available here at OSU. PLL participants receive information about leadership courses happening across campus, and are encouraged to utilize their elective credits to pursue these highlighted classes. Every occasion to reach outside the walls of Drinko Hall is seen as an opportunity to learn from leaders in other fields, enriching our PLL student’s experience.
