Alumni from the CLJC Community: Where Are They Now? 2016 Edition

By Haley Duschinski
Director of the Center for Law, Justice & Culture

The Center for Law, Justice & Culture is proud of OHIO alumni in diverse law and justice fields who participated in the CLJC community during their time at Ohio University. Some of these alumni are in law school, some are in academic or professional M.A. programs, and some are pursuing careers in fields such as criminal justice, social justice, public policy, and international education.

We have collected updates on these recent CLJC alumni, below. This includes students who graduated with the Certificate in Law, Justice & Culture as well as students who took part in CLJC activities and participated more broadly in the Making & Breaking the Law theme.

You can find updates about the Class of 2016 in a separate story.

Alumni, please email CLJC Director Haley Duschinski or CLJC Pre-Law Specialist and Advisor Larry Hayman with any updates or corrections about yourselves or other alumni. We miss you, and we want to know where you are!

And please stay connected to us through Facebook, Twitter, and our CLJC newsletter.
