Law School Programs

Building bridges between law schools and the legal profession

To strengthen our talent pipeline, Tucker Ellis maintains close engagement with area law schools.

Another element of the Tucker Ellis Pipeline Program is our engagement with law schools in Northeast Ohio. In honor of one of our founding partners, we established the Robert C. Tucker Scholarship at Cleveland State University (CSU) College of Law. The firm provides a yearly scholarship to a CSU Law student who is a graduate of the Cleveland Metropolitan School District.

Since 2016, Tucker Ellis has proudly hosted the annual Norman S. Minor Bar Association Law School Summit. Above, attendees of the eighth annual summit gather in our Cleveland office in September 2023.

Tucker Ellis attorneys also are actively engaged in mentoring law students. Most notably, Tucker Ellis attorneys have counseled, mentored, and recruited students involved in the National Black Law Students Association chapters at CSU College of Law, Case Western Reserve University School of Law, and The University of Akron School of Law. Additionally, Tucker Ellis attorneys have coached the Frederick Douglass Moot Court team at CSU College of Law to both regional and national competition success.
