Founded in 1871, Ohio Northern University, located in West Central Ohio, is a private university offering a diverse, dynamic and unique learning community, with rigorous professional programs in partnership with the arts and the sciences. Its 3,500 students study for graduate and undergraduate degrees in five colleges: Arts and Sciences, Engineering, Business Administration, Pharmacy, and Law. The College of Law was established in 1885. The college consists of a team of scholars, teachers, and administrators working together to enhance the students' education and transition into the profession. It has enjoyed a rich and distinguished history. Many outstanding legal scholars have passed through its doors and gone on to serve as lawyers, judges, scholars, senators, and congressmen.
LL.M. students are each matched with an International Peer Advisor (IPA) during orientation. The IPA is a current ONU law student who lives in the area and serves as a mentor to the LL.M. student during their year of study.
These students are selected based on their interest and experience in foreign nations, language facility, and recommendations. The IPAs, along with college faculty and staff, provide transportation for students to nearby cities on the evenings and weekends, organize group activities, and host students over the holidays.
