Ernest Olesky Class of 2024 Co-Valedictorian
Released on Jun 4, 2024

Graduate Profile: 2024 Class Co-Valedictorian Ernest Olesky

2024 Cleveland State University College of Law Co-Valedictorian Ernest Olesky is familiar with receiving such a distinction.  When he graduated as an undergraduate from CSU in 2019 with a degree in Psychology, Criminology and Sociology, Ernest was named valedictorian of the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, the College of Science and Health Professions, and the University.  He does not take these prestigious distinctions lightly.

“It’s a tremendous honor to now cap off this latest chapter of my academic career with this distinction,” said Olesky.

Anna Nelson, Class of 2024 Co-Valedictorian
Released on Jun 4, 2024

Graduate Profile: 2024 Class Co-Valedictorian Anna Nelson

2024 Cleveland State University College of Law Co-Valedictorian and Tucker Ellis Patent Agent Anna Nelson ‘24 never had law school in mind when finishing her undergraduate studies. Nor did she ever have the idea of being valedictorian in mind throughout law school. But four years of hard work later, Anna is proud of the honor.

“As an evening student, I put zero expectations on myself,” explained Anna.  “Going to law school had never been a plan or goal of mine, so I did not envision this kind of success when arriving here. But with reduced pressure on myself to be perfect in school, I think I managed to really learn better.”

Monday Morning Message 6.3.24 The Power of Shared Experience

“As the first Arab American to receive this recognition, this award is especially important not only me—but to my family and community as well.  They have always been by my side throughout my journey. …..When I was growing up, education was not a given for women in my culture.  Fighting for the opportunity to get my undergraduate degree and then pursue law school was another fence I had to climb. ….

Monday Morning Message 5.20.24 Commencement 2024!

Start each day with the optimism that it could be one of your best, don’t cruise through life on autopilot. Be sure to revel in each day…..

The skillset you are leaving here with is your ability to look at situations from many perspectives. I would argue that this trait is more valuable today than ever, and more at risk in our polarized environment where every issue has an immediate magnetic attraction to a preordained  position…. The world is subjective and unyielding positions bathed in absolutes are more often the source of conflict than the solution……

Monday Morning Message 5.6.24 Campus Protests and Law Day.

“Many problems develop when communication between people is difficult or non-existent. It is the root of all violent outbreaks, war, and all general disharmony. We live in a world with many fellow human beings and to realize that each person is not entirely alone will make alienation an obsolete human characteristic.” —Allison Kraus, Kent State student, age 19 (April 23, 1951 - May 4, 1970)

Law Day, held annually on May 1, is a national day set aside to celebrate the rule of law. Law Day provides an opportunity to understand how law and the legal process protect our liberty, strive to achieve justice, and contribute to the freedoms that all Americans share.

Barbara Stanford '80 and Vincent Lombardo '81
Released on May 1, 2024

Alumni Profile: Vincent T. Lombardo ’81 and Barbara J. Stanford ’80

Cleveland State University College of Law alumni Vincent T. Lombardo ’81 and Barbara J. Stanford ’80 both fondly remember their days in law school.  The duo recalls separately taking Evidence with (now Professor Emeritus) Stephen R. Lazarus and how much each enjoyed the course. 

While CSU|LAW set Lombardo and Stanford on a path to career success in the legal field and beyond, their most lasting memory is having met each other in law school. They married in 1982. 

“I am forever grateful to CSU|LAW for giving me a legal education – and the opportunity to meet my wife!  I had always wanted to be an attorney and CSU|LAW allowed me to fulfill my dream,” explained Lombardo.
