Logan Hughes, JD '24


Next step: Associate Attorney at Ramey & Flock, Tyler, Texas.

Logan Hughes is motivated to become the best version of himself both professionally and personally. “My parents and uncles never let me settle,” he said. “There is always room to grow.”

In the Pettit College of Law, Logan soaked up knowledge and took advantage of every opportunity for growth that came his way. In the summer of 2023, the Meeker, Colo., native received an incredible opportunity called the Moyer Fellowship.

The Moyer Fellowship is a highly prestigious award that enables a handful of select Ohio law students to spend their summer researching a cutting-edge legal issue,” said Rick Bales, ONU professor of law.

Logan received $4,000 from the Moyer Foundation and $1,000 from ONU for his research into a discrimination case facing the NFL. His previous research on arbitration in domestic and international sports gave him a running start on the research he conducted for the Moyer Fellowship.

“I was thrilled and thankful to be given this opportunity," said Logan.

He added that ONU Law opened so many doors for him. 

“I never thought I would be the person I am today, before coming to ONU. This university showed me that I am capable of much more than I originally thought.”

Logan chose ONU Law because of scholarship support and the fact that the University allowed him to use his last year of eligibility to play on the Polar Bear football team. Before law school, he obtained a sports management degree from Nebraska Wesleyan University.

At ONU, he was  involved in the ONU Law Review and the ONU Sports Law Society, where he spearheaded bringing the first sports law speaker to campus. He also interned for the Alternate Defense Council in Colorado, helping defense attorneys with criminal defense cases from beginning to end.

The support he’s received from his family, ONU scholarships, and opportunities like the Moyer Fellowship, fueled his passion for the law.

“I am excited to use my services to give back to not only my family, but everyone who helped me get to where I am today.”
