Hey, it’s you from the future, and I have some great news. No, you didn’t win the lottery or discover a new planet (actually, someone else did, and they may or may not have named it after us… Um, I mean you… Me??). Anyway, the point is—you did it! You graduated law school and are ready to change the world.
Sure, there were some stressful times (late-night studying, exams, and that time your jet pack wouldn’t work). More importantly, you weren’t alone, and you had a lot of help along the way.
One great resource that I highly recommend you taking advantage of is the Ohio State Bar Association. The OSBA wants to help you throughout your journey—before, during and after your law school experience.
Here’s just some of the ways the OSBA helps out law students:
1. FREE membership with the OSBA.
Entering law school was just the first step toward your success. Now, take a giant leap forward, and join the OSBA for free. Want to get a head start on networking with law students and lawyers throughout Ohio? How about impressing perspective employers with your insider’s view of the legal profession? Did I mention it’s free?
2. OSBA student outreach law school visits.
The OSBA student outreach team will be visiting your Ohio law school to welcome students for the 2016-17 academic year. Stop by their table at your school’s orientation to learn about OSBA member benefits and grab a free T-shirt.
3. Contribute your awesome writing and video skills to ohiolawstudents.com.
You are smart, creative, intelligent and sensitive (did I mention humble?). Make sure everyone knows it by submitting your articles and ideas to ohiolawstudents.com. It’s the only website dedicated to Ohio law students, and it’s got a ton of resources and info you’ll need to succeed.
4. You will land your dream job. Here’s how.
Ohiolawstudents.com has a career center where you can post your resume and search for jobs. Plus, they have a list of Ohio firms and organizations that offer summer associate opportunities, so you can build on your unique set of legal skills and expertise.
Well, I guess that’s it for now. I’d say good luck, but you don’t need it (because you rock!). Yeah, your self-esteem gets better in the future, too. Just another benefit of being a great lawyer.
