Programs and Events

Explore. Evolve. Engage.

At Cincinnati Law, we know that not all law students are alike. That's why we provide personalized advising and support to help you pinpoint your passion and pursue it.

Here are just a few of our popular programs, which are designed to support you at every level of your Cincinnati Law journey.

First Look

First Look is an innovative event that introduces Cincinnati Law 1L students to the Greater Cincinnati legal market.

First Look:

  • Levels the playing field. Students get information about a variety of career paths at the same time by creating a common starting point for student career exploration.
  • Saves time. First Look is an information fair that requires less time and delivers more impact—meet 1L students at one time in one place.
  • Jumpstarts recruiting. When it's time for you to hire, students already know who you are and the kind of work you do.

Practice Previews

Our five-week programs meet your professional needs, whether you are preparing to work at a law firm or prosecute your first case in court. We use a flipped classroom approach, letting you and your peers take the lead as a group of professionals mentor you along the way.

Breakfast Club

Cincinnati Law's Breakfast Club is much more than an 80s movie fan club. We convene each Fall and connect you with highly accomplished professionals and public servants for a meal and conversation. Our guests include lawyers who serve as

  • general counsel for Fortune 100 Companies
  • executive directors of non-profit organizations
  • private practitioners
  • state and federal prosecutors.


Cincinnati Law's Catalyst Program connects you, one-on-one with professionals whose careers you would like to explore. Through Catalyst, you see what the life of a lawyer looks like by attending in-house training sessions, board meetings and civic and charitable events, observing courtroom proceedings and attending seminars with legal professionals.
