Icelandic Legal Exchange Program (ILEP)
Founded in 1960 by Dean Eugene Hanson of the ONU College of Law and the Dean of the University of Iceland’s School of Law, the Icelandic Legal Exchange Program (ILEP) promotes the understanding of differences between the legal systems of Iceland and the United States. ILEP is a cultural exchange program that fosters education and understanding through interaction between ONU Law Students and Icelandic law students.
For a week during late October, Icelandic law students from the University of Iceland stay with ILEP members in their homes here in Ada. The Icelandic students are exposed to the American legal system through a series of events organized by ILEP members. Trips with the Icelanders usually include trips to the Ohio Supreme Court, the Ohio Statehouse, and a prison tour. ONU law students who participate in the program are then given a stipend to visit Iceland during Spring Break in early March. ONU students who travel to Iceland during spring break get an introduction to not only the Icelandic legal system, but also the rich Icelandic culture. The program is free to join and is one of the few organizations in the entire University that allows interaction with students from another country.

The ONU Law Democrats seek to promote progressive political change and raise awareness of how politics affect our laws and our lives. We strive to help law students become engaged political activists and leaders. Law Dems work to organize students in support of Democratic candidates and issues. Our activities include panels on using a JD in politics and fora on important political and legal issues, Election Day poll monitoring, and social events as well as hosting speakers and candidate debates.

Law Students for Reproductive Justice (LSRJ)
Law Students for Reproductive Justice (LSRJ) advocate for the advancement of the understanding of reproductive justice and its place in the legal community. Reproductive justice will exist when all people can exercise their rights and access the resources they need to decide whether, when, and how to have and/or parent children with dignity, free from discrimination, coercion, or violence. LSRJ encourages multi-issue activism and the integration of reproductive rights law and justice into legal education in order to further scholarly discourse and to increase learning opportunities about law students’ and new lawyers’ roles in the reproductive health, rights, and justice movements. LSRJ offers experiences and opportunities to develop law students’ leadership, advocacy, and legal skills and build a foundation of lasting support for reproductive justice within the legal community.
