Each and every one of us is affected by the law and it’s not always as simple as following the posted speed limit. The law is a complex system of precedents, rulings and research. Many people turn to lawyers in times of need – during stressful, vulnerable episodes in their life, often when hope seems lost. Lawyers help solve problems and anticipate the needs of their clients.
At our core, the Ohio State Bar Foundation is an extension of the dream many attorneys had when they committed to law school – to change the world and help others. The Foundation converts those idealized dreams into real-world actions and impact through law-related philanthropy in communities across Ohio.
At the Ohio State Bar Foundation, we pride ourselves on being the best possible stewards of your investment – we value transparency and invite you to review our 2017 Financial Report to learn more about the impact of your donations.
