Chris Gerace is from Bay Village, Ohio, a suburb on the west side of Cleveland. He graduated from The Ohio State University in 2016 with a degree in Biology and a minor in Psychology. Chris played for the club soccer team at Ohio State, was a peer mentor for Honors Arts and Sciences freshmen, and tutored undergraduate and military veteran students in science and math subjects. During the summer between his first and second years in law school, Chris was a judicial intern for Judge William Baughman in the Federal District Court for the Northern District of Ohio. Chris loves playing sports of all kinds, and is an avid Cleveland sports fan—even of the Browns. His intramural football team, made up entirely of law students, won the championship in Notre Dame Stadium in the fall of 2017, one of the highlights of his life. Chris also enjoys reading, especially Lord of the Rings.
