A statewide legal preparation program helped Ohio State University graduate Ronald Birchfield learn how to be a lawyer. His passion led him in a different direction, but the program set him up for success.
Now an Ohio State alumnus, Birchfield also is a graduate of the Law and Leadership Institute, a statewide program supported by the legal community and state law schools. LLI enrolls high school-aged students from underserved communities and prepares them for a career in law.
“I was choosing between law and medicine,” Birchfield said. Medicine won out.
Birchfield is not going to law school at this time, but he credits LLI with helping prepare him to get the most out of his college career. He graduated earlier this month with a degree in nutrition science and will pursue a master’s degree in health care administration at the College of Public Health.
