Who we are
As advocates for a sense of public justice, the Criminal Law Society seeks to promote student interest in all things criminal law. Whether your interests are prosecution- or defense-oriented, or public service in general, our group provides the best vehicle for you to share those interests with other like-minded individuals.
What we do
The Criminal Law Society provides a platform on which members can learn new ideas, hear speakers discuss various hot topics in criminal law and share intellectual ideas about the proper way to administer criminal justice. As public-service advocates, our members engage in a number of volunteer events, ranging from subject-related activities such as Crime Stoppers to general service activities in the local community. And, like any good legal society, we provide networking opportunities in both professional and casual settings. Our group facilitates members' passions for criminal law by connecting them with both practitioners and scholars in the field in various interactive forums inside and outside the Law School.
