Law & Criminal Justice Program
This program prepares students for careers in law or law enforcement and exposes them to the many professional opportunities in these fields. Program participants will have the chance to learn more about the work being done by law enforcement agencies, government legal offices, private law firms and associations in a variety of practice areas—including criminal prosecution and defense, civil rights, consumer protection, family law and immigration. Students will gain insight into how the different branches of government enact, implement, and enforce laws while also having the opportunity to engage with professionals in their areas of interest.

“I was able to learn more about the career path I wish to take, I gained insight from high-profile leaders about the world's most pressing issues, and I became a much more socially-aware citizen. Truthfully, the programming was just as vital for my personal and professional growth as my internship, volunteer experience, and my class.”
-Reginald Glosson, Intern with Offender Aid and Restoration, Dickinson College, Fall 2012
“The Law and Criminal Justice Program provided me with great contacts with current working professionals in the field.”
