Professor Elizabeth Cooke was quoted in The Lantern about a new option for Ohio State students to purchase Student Legal Services as a student fee. The new service replaces the current Student Housing Legal Clinic. SHLC only covers landlord and tenant matters.
"The services (of the program) will be greatly expanded," Cooke said.
The new SLS will still do lease reviews with students and cover all landlord issues. Practicing attorneys will provide representation through the SLS. It's undetermined if student interns will be part of the office.
"It's just like going into a law office," Cooke added. "(SLS) tried to focus their scope on matters that effect students. They want students to be as successful as possible."
