Over the past decade, the Ohio State College of Law has undergone an impressive transformation. It all started one day in 2001 when a man named Michael Moritz ’61 marched into the dean’s suite with a $30 million gift. Moritz inspired other alumni to step forward and match his generous gift over the next several years. The Class of 2003 would be the first of a new generation that would call us Moritz.
It was much more than a name change, however. The Moritz Generation represents a time when change was abundant throughout the law school. The credentials for our incoming students were the highest they have ever been. Once here, great things began to happen. Law journals were launched. Symposium topics were relevant and novel. Moot court teams were winning. New student groups were formed. Externships were created. Leadership training was in demand. The Moritz Generation is here, and they are determined to leave their mark on the Moritz College of Law.
But, why should it end there? Look at the class notes. Read the Briefing Room stories. You are doing incredible things. You are in command of courtrooms, negotiating high-profile deals, winning elections, running nonprofits, filing documents. ALL of you are making a difference, which is exactly what Michael Moritz ’61 and the plethora of donors that followed hoped you would do. You are not only meeting expectations, but exceeding them in every way.
We are asking now for your assistance. Help us build on what you, and the many alumni before you, started. Giving rates among recent graduates have always been modest. Can you help us change those statistics and continue to exceed our expectations? Today 1 in every 5 dollars the college spends comes from donations. We need your support to continue to build programs like law journals, moot court, leadership scholarships, career start grants, clinics and hands-on learning courses, and career services programming. Continue making a difference, support the College today.
