The Board of Visitors of the Columbus School of Law is chosen from a geographically and professionally diverse cross-section of alumni, parents, and friends selected for their ability to provide advice to the Dean on how to strengthen teaching, scholarship, and service in the Law School.

The members of the Board of Visitors serve as counselors to the Dean of the Law School, with particular focus on:

1) strengthening the academic program and educational goals of the Law School and improving its visibility and image, nationally and internationally;

2) addressing the concerns of alumni, students, faculty, parents, and friends of the law school; and, increasing and strengthening the financial resources of the Law School.

In pursuit of these objectives, the Dean typically provides to the Board, prior to and as part of each meeting, information concerning matters of current interest, including new academic programs, the changing nature and composition of the student body, services and facilities of the Law School, trends in faculty hiring, scholarship, teaching and service, and career services, including summer and post-graduate employment. Board members share their insights and perspectives on developments in the law generally and in the legal profession as a career choice.

The Board consists of no fewer than 50 members drawn from the public and private sectors and is organized to enable the members to engage in a serious dialog on the goals and objectives of the Law School. Members of the Board are appointed by the Dean of the Law School for a renewable term of three years.

The full Board convenes at least twice a year. Committees of the Board are created to execute more effectively the purposes of the Board.
