OU community members protest proposed changes to Center for Law, Justice and Culture on College Green - Ryan Maxin, the Post Athens

 Ohio University students and faculty gathered Saturday on College Green to protest proposed budget cuts to OU’s Center for Law, Justice and Culture, or CLJC. All “friends” of the center received an email from it March 22 outlining the possible repercussions budget cuts would have. If the cuts are implemented by OU, they could have “drastic implications for CLJC and Ohio University,” according to the email. The fallout of budget cuts would also include a possible elimination of OHIO Pre-Law Day, a discontinuation of lectures and visits from prominent legal scholars and a relocation of Larry Hayman, a pre-law adviser and specialist at OU, the email said.
