Law and Leadership Institute

  • The Law and Leadership Institute, LLC (“LLI”) is a state-wide initiative in collaboration with the legal community that inspires and prepares students from underserved communities for post-secondary and professional success through a comprehensive four-year academic program in law, leadership, analytical thinking, problem solving, writing skills and professionalism. LLI students attend classes during the five week LLI Summer Institute and on Saturdays during the school year at each of the eight Ohio law schools located in urban areas, including Capital University Law School.

    LLI students are recruited to produce a class composition that promotes diversity and can serve to diversify the pipeline of students entering the legal profession. In doing so, LLI hopes to enhance the administration of justice in Ohio and nationwide by infusing the legal profession with individuals who reflect the communities they serve and, along the way, groom young leaders who excel as high school and college students.
