Chase prepares

If you or someone you know is considering attending law school, the Salmon P. Chase College of Law may be an attractive option, but with the March 1 deadline for Fall admission fast approaching, the time to decide is now.

The Chase College of Law provides many opportunities to students who are interested in finding success in the legal community.

According to Dean Gerard A. St. Amand, the first-time pass rate for Chase law students taking the Kentucky Bar Exam is higher than the state average. This also holds true for those taking the Ohio Bar Exam.

“I like all the professors here,” said Roy Durham, a first year law student at Chase. “They are student oriented and will spend time with students one-on-one. The professors have flexible hours and are easy to get a hold of.”

The attention professors give the students is not only appreciated by the students themselves, but integral to the success of the college.

This is in addition to other opportunities made available, such as externship placement, as well as provide valuable experience in the broad field of law. Chase also has the Law Library that provides students access to resources for legal studies.

Many of the graduates of the Chase College of Law become leaders in their community.

Beverly Storm, class of 1980, was the former president of the Kentucky Bar Association, and R. Kent Westberry, also class of 1980, was recently elected Vice President of the Kentucky Bar Association.

Students who plan to attend classes at Chase this August need to submit an application by the March 1 deadline.

Applications are available via e-mail or from the Admissions Office at (859) 572-6404.
