Professor Elizabeth Cooke was quoted in a Lantern article regarding 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, said Elizabeth Cooke, clinical professor of law at Moritz College of Law. "The services (of the program) will be greatly expanded."
The new SLS will still do lease reviews with students and cover all landlord issues, Cooke said. She said 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 said. "(SLS) tried to focus their scope on matters that effect students," Cooke said. "They want students to be as successful as possible."
