Grant Winners Selected

Congratulations to the 100 schools that have won a field trip transportation grant to visit our Ohio Judicial Center! It was a difficult process to winnow down the 250 applications that were received by the deadline. As you know, we had only 100 grants available worth up to $400 each.

Our grant winners were selected by the Visitor Education Center based upon need, and we are happy to report that classes which would otherwise have had a very difficult time in reaching the home of the Supreme Court of Ohio now will have the chance to do so.

We are grateful to the Ohio Judicial Center Foundation, which donated $30,000 to help off-set transportation costs. And we’re also glad that those who applied have shown that they value a visit to see us.

Come visit the Ohio Justice Center

Let me remind you that we have many visitors to the Supreme Court here in Columbus. Just today, Ohio Northern University’s LLM students toured the Ohio Judicial Center. Nearly a dozen law students sat in on oral arguments and talked with Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor before eating lunch with Justice Robert Cupp.

You are welcome to come in person to see oral arguments at any time. Here is the schedule. We begin at 9 a.m. on days arguments are scheduled. You can also watch us online. It’s a great way to learn about Ohio’s rule of law.
