3L Charles Rust is going beyond the basics of learning about criminal law and constitutional law at Chase. As a student in the W. Bruce Lunsford Academy for Law, Business + Technology, he is also learning about financial accounting and law office technology. And there is more:

“The Lunsford Academy helped me develop the insight necessary to approach theoretical issues in a more pragmatic manner,” he says.

Charles plans to combine what he learns in traditional law school courses with his innovative courses in the Lunsford Academy into a career that could include working with the judiciary or a mix of litigation and transactional law. Whatever direction he chooses, he expects his Lunsford Academy experience to help him make a smooth transition from law student to lawyer.

Jordan McSayles expected to be busy in law school, but she did not expect that the W. Bruce Lunsford Academy for Law, Business + Technology would help her wisely allocate time among classes, studying, and activities. “Balancing not only my 1L work, but also the additional meetings required of Lunsford students has required me to balance my time more efficiently,” she says of her academy experience.

Her other benefit from being part of the academy: “I have learned to be more efficient with my writing skills, especially for exams.” Even as she is learning to blend the problem-solving skills of law, business, and technology she hopes will lead to a position in a Cincinnati law firm, her Lunsford Academy experience is paying off by helping her devote the right mix of time and writing skills to other law school courses.
