The current constitution was adopted in 1788, with the first ten amendments, collectively named the Bill of Rights, being ratified in 1791 to guarantee many fundamental civil liberties; the United States embarked on a vigorous expansion across North America throughout the 19th century, acquiring new territories, displacing Native American tribes, admitting new states until it spanned the continent by 1848.

The Michael E. Moritz College of Law is a public law school founded in 1891 and located in Drinko Hall on the main campus of the Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio; the school is accredited by the American Bar Association and is a charter member of the Association of American Law Schools. The Moritz College of Law is ranked the 30th best law school in the United States and 2nd in dispute resolution by U. S. News & World Report. In addition, Moritz is ranked the 18th best law school and 5th best public law school in the United States by Business Insider. According to the Moritz College of Law's official 2016 ABA-required disclosures, 77% of the Class of 2016 obtained full-time, long-term, bar passage-required employment nine months after graduation, excluding solo-practitioners; this ranked Moritz 24th in the United States and 1st in Ohio for job placement of recent law graduates. The board of trustees of the Ohio State University sanctioned a law school in June 1885 after approving a resolution introduced by trustee Peter H. Clark, an early African-American civil rights activist.
However, it was not until October 1891 that the law school was formally opened to 33 students, including 1 woman, in the basement of the original Franklin County Courthouse. Marshall Jay Williams, a Justice of the Ohio Supreme Court served as the first dean of the law school and lectured for two years before resigning in 1893. In 1896, the University elevated the law school to its present-day College of Law status. In 1903, the College of Law moved to Page Hall, its first permanent building on the main campus of the University, named in honor of Henry F. Page, a prominent Ohio attorney who had left his estate to the University. Over the next four decades, the College of Law experienced rapid growth under the successive leadership of deans William F. Hunter, Joseph H. Outhwaite, John Jay Adams and Herschel Arant. Today, the College of Law continues its growth in national stature under the successive leadership of deans Gregory H. Williams, Nancy H. Rogers and now Alan C. Michaels; the modern day building that now houses the Moritz College of Law since 1958, Drinko Hall, is named after internationally known attorney and College of Law benefactor John Deaver Drinko, former Managing Partner of BakerHostetler in Cleveland, Ohio.
Drinko received his law degree from the College of Law in 1944 and received a Distinguished Alumnus Award in 1991. In 2001, the College of Law received a $30 million donation from benefactor Michael E. Moritz, former partner of BakerHostetler in Columbus, Ohio. Moritz received his undergraduate degree from the Ohio State University Fisher College of Business in 1941 and law degree from the College of Law in 1944, where he graduated at the top of his class. At the time, it was the largest single gift to the Ohio State University; the donation provided full tuition grants with stipends to 30 law students, 4 endowed faculty chairs, 3 service awards for students, a fund for use by the dean. The College of Law completed a supplemental campaign to raise an additional $30 million to match Moritz's gift and make further improvements; the Ohio State University continues to recognize the Moritz College of Law through its Selective Investment Grants as a unit worthy of funding for innovative programs and top faculty.
Further, Moritz College of Law's faculty have been awarded University-wide teaching and scholarship awards.

News & World Report ranked the Moritz College of Law full-time Juris Doctor program the 32nd best law school in America and 1st for dispute resolution in 2015.

Students have the opportunity to write and edit works published in a variety of peer-reviewed journals, which are permanently archived and available online at the Ohio State University Knowledge Bank. Five legal journals are published by The Ohio State Moritz College of Law; these leading publications publish innovative and relevant scholarly articles by law professors and legal scholars from across the country and around the world as well as student written notes and comments of professional interest to lawyers and policy makers. The Ohio State Law Journal was founded in 1935 as the "Law Journal of the Student Bar Association" and was a "section" of the Student Bar Association and funded by student contributions. Robert E. Leach'35, former Chief Justice of the Ohio Supreme Court, was the first editor of the Law Journal.
