2L Tyler Bridge featured by Ohio State Bar Association after 2020 clerkship

January 5, 2021 | Students

Current Moritz student Tyler Bridges spent time in 2020 as a Rural Practice Clerk in the Perry County Municipal Court with Judge Dean Wilson. He was featured in an article by the Ohio State Bar Association detailing his experience.

“My hope was that I would be able to live and work in the community for almost three months,” Bridge said. “Because of the pandemic, I was unable to do so. Instead, I commuted each day to and from Columbus, and though I wasn’t living in Perry County, I made it a point to see just about each and every community in the county and surrounding areas.”

“I applied to the Rural Practice Clerkship Program to go to the communities too often forgotten, learn from them, encounter the issues as they are and to see the law operate where the rubber meets the road,” Bridge added. “Perry County is a lot like Hamilton; its people are proud, its history is deep, but the future doesn’t look as bright as it once did. … The people of Perry County and the Honorable Judge Dean Wilson are working every day to change lives and build a better future.”
