Applications, which can be found online, are due by 5 p.m. on Sept. 4. All students are welcome to apply, both undergraduate and graduate.

The Center for Law, Justice & Culture encourages all students who are part of the CLJC community to apply.

The Judicial Panel is a new body created through a recently passed resolution.

Hashim Pashtun, who will serve as Chief Justice, encourages all students to apply, regardless of career interest.

“If they are interested in law, even if they are not, that’s completely okay,” said Pashtun, who is pursuing a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering. “I mean, just look at me.”

To Pashtun, while some experience with law is preferred, “the most important thing is critical analysis.”

The Judicial Panel will include nine associate justices, a clerk of courts, and a chief justice. The clerk of courts and associate justices will remain on the panel for the duration of their time as an Ohio University student, or until they resign.

As justices, they will serve to preside over three major components of Student Senate: rules and procedures, board of elections, and conduct and discipline. The clerk of court, while still imbued with the same responsibilities as the associate justices, will also serve as a liaison between Student Senate and the Judicial Panel.

Once all applications for justices are in, officials within Student Senate estimate they will propose appointments in the September 14 senate meeting.

Please contact Hashim Pashtun with any questions at, or visit the Student Senate office on the third floor of Baker, room 305.
