Chief Justice Thomas J. Moyer Fellowship Program

Please see the below message from  Stephan W. Stover, Chair of OSBA Chief Justice Thomas J. Moyer Legacy Committee.  The link to the application can be found at the bottom of this letter.

I am pleased to announce that we are accepting applications for the eighth annual Moyer Fellowship Program, sponsored by the Chief Justice Thomas J. Moyer Legacy Committee of the Ohio State Bar Association, with the support of the Ohio State Bar Foundation. The Moyer Fellowship Program was established in 2012 to honor the late Chief Justice and sustain his dedication to the administration of justice and public understanding of the law, including tenets such as legal and civic education, dispute resolution, ethics, civility, judicial independence, and the rule of law.

The 2019 Moyer Fellowship will be awarded to two first- or second-year law students enrolled in an Ohio law school.  The Committee especially encourages applications that involve original research projects.

Since the inception of the Moyer Fellowship, the Legacy Committee has increased its share of the Fellowship award to $4,000.  The Committee asks the law schools of the successful applicants to contribute $1,000 in funds for a total award of $5,000.  To participate in the program, the law schools of the successful applicants must make a commitment to supplement the grant with a $1,000 contribution.

The forms and a program description page are included with this mailing, and an electronic version will also be sent to you.  Please distribute this information to your students.

Applications must be submitted not later than Monday, March 18, 2019 to Jennifer Harrell at jharrell@ohiobar.org or Simon’e Lightfoot at slightfoot@ohiobar.org.  Questions should be directed to Moyer Legacy Committee Member, Rick Dove, at rick.dove@sc.ohio.gov.

Thank you for your support in sustaining the legacy of Chief Justice Thomas J. Moyer to improve the practice of law and the administration of justice.

Very truly yours,

Stephan W. Stover, Chair
