About this Group

Group Description
We are a group of law students interested in the interaction of the social sciences with criminal law and in current criminal justice issues.
Group's principal activities, events, or programs:
Our aim is to (a) provide a forum for those interested in Criminal Justice issues and the philosophy of criminal law (b) to facilitate discourse between students and criminal law practitioners (c) and to collaborate with NGOs and legal organisations to provide volunteer opportunities to the membership.
How this group's activities benefit the University community:
There is a current lack of a medium through which the criminal law faculty can engage the students in the criminal law related events hosted by the law school. We hope to provide such a medium and encourage greater involvement on the part of the students with this department.
How this group fits into its categories:
(a) - We plan to host events centered around authors, professors and legal practitioners that relates to the field of criminal law. These seminars will center around current scholarship in the subject and are hence both educational and academic in their scope. (b) - We hope to organize activities that will enable students to gain experience in their professional fields of interest. (c) - We want to offer students the opportunity to volunteer and provide their services to NGOs and other such organisations.
How to get involved with this group:
Students need only attend two Criminal Justice League meetings and sign up to receive emails from the group to be considered a member. For any further information, they can contact Michelle Lobo at lobox013@umn.edu
