As such, our mission includes an obligation to study and practice law in service of the Common Good and to conduct our scholarly and service activities with preference for the poor and under represented among us. Our commitment to the goal of Social Justice inspires a wide range of inititatives by all members of our community." Veryl Victoria Miles, Former Dean and Professor or Law.
What We Do
The Office of Law & Social Justice Initiatives (L&SJI) is dedicated to supporting our community of students, staff, and faculty in their efforts to make a lifetime commitment to service in the common good. L&SJI develops programs, practices, and other initiatives to encourage, facilitate, and promote community service and pro bono publico activities by students, faculty, and alumni of Columbus School of Law. The Office also assists students who wish to pursue post-graduate fellowships and other employment opportunities in public interest and public service settings.
