Ohio Northern University -
New York State Representative Tom Reed made the trip to his alma mater, Ohio Northern University, to give advice to graduating law students. Reed started his law career practicing at a firm, but said he always had aspirations to be a state representative and became one using the philosophy, "Carpe Diem."
Many law graduates plan on taking the bar in the coming months, and making a life within the courtroom. With plenty being done in the Senate and House, ONU's 2013's top graduating student and future Goodwin & Goodwin associate, Elise McQuain, is keeping her options open. Other graduates hope to avoid a courtroom all together, including graduate Hope Smalls, who dreams of serving as a state representative.
Law students graduated this weekend with Juris Doctorate degrees and will take the bar exam this coming July.
