Students from five colleges admitted to Certificate in Law, Justice & Culture program

The Center for Law, Justice & Culture announced its next cohort of Ohio University students that have been admitted to the undergraduate Certificate in Law, Justice & Culture program.

"Another record year of 50 applicants led to a broad interdisciplinary cohort of students who represent more than 15 different majors from across five colleges," said Kevin Uhalde, associate professor of history and director of the center.

This is the 11th year of the selective certificate program, which launched in 2013-14 in the College of Arts and Sciences. All the newly admitted students will take the core course for the undergraduate certificate — LJC 2000: Core Course in Law, Justice & Culture — in the spring. Students in the certificate program also take POLS 2200 The Politics of Law and SOC 2600 Criminal Justice, along with three upper-level elective courses for an interdisciplinary training in law and society.

Additionally, students participate in the intellectual life of the Center for Law, Justice & Culture and engage in experiential learning opportunities, such as internships and research projects related to governance, social justice and human rights.
