You are receiving this email from The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law because you have expressed an interest in attaining an LL.M. degree. As we begin a series of monthly emails to prospective applicants, we invite you to consider applying to our program.
At Moritz, we understand that choosing the right LL.M. program is a difficult decision. We have great respect and admiration for your decision to spend a year away from friends and family, studying the legal systems, history and culture of another country. Here are a few reasons why we believe an LL.M. from Ohio State is the best choice.
At The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, we often say that our learning environment is second to none. That's not just a marketing slogan. Our professors are experts in their fields, and are called on by media outlets large and small to add to the national discussion of important legal issues. As the debate evolves, so does their scholarship. In the classroom, they strive each day to create an atmosphere of mutual respect, where J.D. and LL.M. students alike share their ideas for the benefit of all. Moritz is a place where collegiality is more important than competition, where the success of each student matters.
Students cannot succeed without support. The Moritz LL.M. Program is intentionally limited to 25 students, so that staff can provide unparalleled support and guidance. From our comprehensive orientation to our sessions held throughout the year, our activities offer an element crucial to understanding the information presented in class: context. No question on the law—or American life—is too small for us to answer.
We know that your time here is not just about classes. We create opportunities for LL.M. students to gather informally, relax and have a good time. One of our fall favorites is traveling to a farm to pick (and eat!) apples. Spending time together helps students realize they are not alone. Together, we are like a family.
The Ohio State University name is known and respected as one of the top-ranked public research universities in the United States. Its 500,000 alumni, known as Buckeyes, live and work around the globe. One of the favorite ways to show affection for our alma mater is to make the O-H-I-O, where four friends stand together to make the letters. Visit the O-H-I-O site to see poses taken in your home country!
At Moritz, you will experience more than just classes. Consider applying today, and join our community of scholars.
