Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor appointed Julie Cohara ’13M as a member of the Ohio Supreme Court’s Commission on Continuing Legal Education, beginning a three year term that started this year.

The Commission on Continuing Legal Education administers the continuing legal education requirements imposed on attorneys and judges in the state of Ohio. The Commission also accredits programs and activities that satisfy Ohio’s mandatory CLE requirements.

Cohara is the Director of Degree Programs of Ohio University’s University College, where she advises students in, teaches and manages curricula for the Bachelors of Specialized Studies & Criminal Justice and Associates of Individualized Studies, Arts and Science programs. As these programs are multidisciplinary, Cohara most enjoys facilitating students’ construction of collaborative partnerships with faculty across the university.

She also volunteers as the Ohio Region Coordinator of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, supporting multidisciplinary research/service-learning curricula and directing leadership development programming for two-year degree students statewide. She serves as a co-advisor for Ohio University’s Beta Beta Theta chapter of Phi Theta Kappa.

Cohara earned an M.A. in Sociology from the College of Arts & Sciences at Ohio University, focusing on research methods, social class inequality, and the organization of law & higher education. Previously, she earned two bachelor degrees with University Honors in Psychology and Speech Communication, and completed graduate coursework in curriculum, instruction, and educational leadership from Miami University. For more than 10 years, Cohara worked at a two-year college, where she held several roles including admissions counselor, coordinator of student life, and assistant professor of social sciences.
