Future Lawyers

This fall, LLI Columbus graduate, Alexis Apparicio, and LLI Akron graduate, Imokhai Okolo, embarked on the next chapter in their academic career: law student. Both students began LLI the first year of the statewide program and are the first graduates to attend law school.

After graduating from Ohio University in spring 2017, Ms. Apparicio is now attending The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law. Mr. Okolo graduated from Miami University in spring 2017 and is now attending the University of Akron School of Law.

Both students attribute a great deal of their success to the LLI program. We wish nothing but the best for Alexis and Imokhai and look forward to seeing what they will accomplish in the future!
