University of Dayton Celebrates Its Legal Profession Program

Kyle T. Kirts has spent nearly two decades providing legal council on matters such as juvenile justice reform, family law, and eviction proceedings. Prior to beginning his career, Kyle Kirts earned a juris doctor from the University of Dayton School of Law in Ohio.

The University of Dayton School of Law recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of its Legal Profession Program, which has achieved national recognition as one of the leading legal research and writing programs in the United States. In 2004, U.S. News & World Report ranked the program 21st in the nation for its outstanding legal research and writing program.

Dayton Law constantly updates its curriculum to help students stay at the forefront of the legal field, and it recently revised requirements to include transactional drafting classes as a substitute for appellate advocacy courses. Behind the program’s success is an eminent faculty active in the legal writing community. As authorities in their respective fields, faculty members also regularly serve as speakers at industry conferences.


Evicting a Tenant in Ohio

Since 2009, Kyle Kirts has served as an attorney based out of Dayton, Ohio. As a legal professional with more than 15 years of experience, Kyle Kirts has worked in various areas of law. Among these, Kyle T. Kirts has excelled in representing both landlords and tenants in legal disputes.

In the state of Ohio, the eviction process may begin when a tenant fails to pay rent on time or in some other way violates the terms of the lease the individual signed with the landlord. If a landlord attempts to evict an individual for any other reason, additional legal actions can be taken against the landlord. If the lease has been violated, the landlord must first issue a notice of intent to evict; the tenant then must be given at least three days to vacate the premises before the eviction process begins. Although the process does not begin until this three day period has passed, landlords are not obligated to accept late rent, or a fix to other lease violations, and stop the process.

After an eviction notice is served, the landlord must file an official complaint with the relevant municipal court, which then serves the tenant with a court date. At this time, tenants are afforded the opportunity to defend themselves. At the close of the eviction trial, a judge will determine whether or not the eviction is justifiable.
