CBus!

It seems folks who come to Columbus for law school (and for undergrad for that matter) love it so much it's hard to leave. If you have CBus pride in a big way, consider being counsel to the city itself. While the search phrase "municipal law" may give you some results in the law library catalog, your best bet to prep for work representing a city is to research labor law, torts, employment law, and land use. For example, sidewalks aren't just for tripping on, they may also be the subject of a takings claim. And construction projects aren't always halted due to unforeseen land issues.

Most of our labor/union law materials can be found on the top (i.e., 3rd) floor of the library and in the reserve room between the call numbers KF 3350 and KF 3370.

Most of our employment law materials can be found on the top (i.e., 3rd) floor of the library and in the reserve room between the call numbers KF 3300 and KF 3300. (For specifics about Ohio, check out the State/National Collection on the main (i.e., 2nd) floor of the library near the call number KFO 331.)

Most of our tort law materials can be found on the top (i.e., 3rd) floor of the library and in the reserve room around the call number KF 1250.

Most of our land use materials can be found on the mezzanine (between floors two and three) near KF 5698. (Ohio-specific material can be found in the State/National Collection on the main (i.e., 2nd) floor of the library near the call number KFO 458.)
