The Vincent and Elizabeth Buttaci Oxford Scholarship Offers Ohio State Law Students the Opportunity to Study Internationally, Gaining Perspective and Confidence

The Ohio State University Michael E. Moritz College of Law’s Oxford Summer Law Program is one of the oldest overseas law programs in existence—operating since 1987.

Vincent N. Buttaci, who earned his J.D. from Moritz in 2000, has kept close ties with his alma mater and holds a high regard for the legal education he received and the lasting friendships he made at Ohio State.

In 2019, Vincent established the Vincent and Elizabeth Buttaci Oxford Scholarship to help Moritz students afford the Oxford Summer Program. The scholarship was scheduled to be available to a student in 2020, but because of the pandemic, the initial Buttaci Oxford Scholarships were presented together in 2022.

“We are grateful to Vincent and Elizabeth for their incredibly generous support of the Oxford Summer Law Program,” said Dean Lincoln Davies. “The Buttaci Oxford Scholarship provides our students with a unique opportunity to learn about the British and American legal systems while being immersed in a new culture. It is an experience they will draw from throughout their lives and legal careers.”

“My wife Elizabeth and I were so thrilled to hear from the 2022-23 Buttaci Oxford Scholars about their experiences in Oxford,” said Vincent, who founded Buttaci Leardi & Werner with a focus on healthcare law in Princeton, NJ. “They took it all in—the culture, the education, the professional connections, and lasting friendships—and gained a new level of confidence and trust in their abilities. As an advocate of wellness and behavioral health in the legal field, I am so gratified to know that the experience was both academically and emotionally rewarding for these scholars.”

He added, “I am excited for the new recipient of the Buttaci Oxford Scholarship who will be heading to Oxford this summer with Professor Todd Starker and Associate Dean Paul Rose and look forward to connecting after the trip.” More information on the 2023-2024 Moritz College of Law Oxford Summer Law Program, including funding opportunities like the Vincent and Elizabeth Buttaci Oxford Scholarship, is available here.
