Pre-Law Students Present before Judge

As part of their learning in Constitutional Law class, CCU Pre-Law students Christy Andrews and Perry Moore researched the legal issues surrounding the Little Sisters of the Poor v. Burwell case. They each wrote court briefs summarizing their findings, which is work typically reserved for law students.

As the culminating activity for their class, they were privileged to present their case arguments before Hon. Robert C Winkler, Judge of the Court of Common Pleas for Hamilton County. Judge Winkler has been serving the courts since 2002 and was impressed with the level of work produced by these Pre-Law students. At the conclusion of their arguments, he provided feedback on their presentations as well as invaluable insight into the justice system.

Adjunct Professor Bill Frank has been practicing law in Cincinnati for 29 years. He made the necessary arrangements for his students to present their case in front of a judge. Regarding his students and their efforts, Professor Frank said, “Christy and Perry’s performances were third-year law school quality. This is one example of how the CCU Pre-Law program will continue exposing students to the actual practice of law as recommended by the American Bar Association in its recent statement on Pre-Law education.”

MAC Program Summer Enrollment

Our Master of Arts in Counseling program (MAC) has been accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling & Related Educational Programs (CACREP) since January of 2014. This accreditation assures the quality of our academic program, streamlines the licensure application process for our students, and increases faculty productivity in areas such as research, publication, and service.

The CACREP Board extends two- and eight-year accreditation cycles. It is common for programs seeking initial accreditation (such as CCU’s MAC program) to receive a 2-year accreditation. In October 2015, we submitted an Interim Report to extend our accreditation for the remainder of the accreditation cycle, and it was approved.

Based on our program results and site evaluations, our CACREP accreditation for the MAC program has been extended through the remainder of the eight-year accreditation cycle ending on March 31, 2022.

We have also recently expanded our offerings for the 2016-17 academic year. With new faculty and a more streamlined clinical training process, we are able to accept additional students. Our application deadline has been extended to June 15, 2016, for the Fall semester. Apply online today or contact us to learn more about joining the MAC family – 513.244.8426
