New: Students for Law, Justice and Culture

All students are invited to join the new student organization Students for Law, Justice and Culture.

Next Meeting: Monday, Feb. 17, at 7 p.m. in the center space at Bentley Hall 001.

“We are excited to reveal a new academic student organization: Students for Law, Justice & Culture. The club is affiliated with the Center for Law, Justice & Culture at Ohio University, and all students across Ohio University are invited to join. We want all disciplines and all interests,” says student Katie Conlon.

SLJC provides a space for students of law, justice, culture and related academic disciplines to talk about issues in the field. It’s a chance to talk about everything from International Criminal Court affairs to domestic justice issues and local grassroots protest movements. “We want to discuss the ways that people past, present and around the world look at law and justice.

“We work with the CLJC to bring programming about relevant topics to campus. This semester, we will be working on the Anthropology of International Justice Lecture Series in cooperation with Anthropology Club and STAND Against Genocide. We are also working with the Making & Breaking the Law theme and the Center for Law, Justice & Culture on the spring series “Critical Resistance in the Digital Age.”

From the center’s website: “The Center for Law, Justice & Culture is an interdisciplinary academic community dedicated to advancing scholarship and teaching by integrating programs and uniting faculty and students who share a common interest in law’s constitutive and formative role in cultural, political, and social life.”
