WHAT: Travel Learn Information & Recruitment Session

WHEN: Monday, October 27 at 3:15pm

WHERE: GLAB 306

For those who missed our first meeting, we will be having a second information session. Join us for a 2015 spring break Travelearn to London to discover the roots of the American Criminal Justice System. Students will be eligible to enroll in a 1-credit Travel Learn course as a part of the CJ Comparative Criminal Justice Course, CJ 3640. Students previously enrolled in CJ 3640 will be allowed to enroll in CJ 3641 TL for the credit.

The costs for this will be approximately $3400.00 for 15 students. With a maximum of 25 participants the approximate cost will be $3000.00. Students can pay directly or with financial aid. More about this will be discussed at the meeting.

Join Professors James Drylie and Dennis Bogdan as we travel to London and visit sites like the Inns of Court, the Royal Courts of Justice, the City Academy of London Police, the Cabinet War Rooms, as well as other historical sites in the development of the criminal justice system in the UK and around the world.

Written without a constitution, The United Kingdom has a criminal justice system which is built upon tradition and convention established over centuries. With a predominantly unarmed police force and lawyers and judges who wear wigs, Britain presents a fascinating contrast to the criminal justice systems found in the US and other countries. Yet with two of the busiest border entry points in the world and an increasingly divergent population it is a system which formed the basis of many nations’ systems as a police force which to this day garners the respect of the world.

Coming soon! The Criminal Justice-Public Health journal club will have its 2014-15 kick-off meeting on Sept. 25th (3:30-4:30; Willis 303). The club is informal, meeting 2-3 times per semester to discuss students' research interests, and so that Dr. Hassett-Walker can help guide participants towards upcoming research opportunities such as participating in Kean's Research Days or an outside professional conference (e.g., American Society of Criminology). There are also opportunities to apply for funding for a research study, such as through Kean's Students Partnering with Faculty (SpF) summer program. (See here: 
http://orsp.kean.edu/AwardProfiles/StudentResearch.html). For students planning to apply to graduate school, or for those already enrolled in one of Kean's graduate programs, or just interested in research generally, the club offers a good opportunity to get some scholastic-type entries on your C.V. Anyone interested can reach out to Dr. Connie Hassett-Walker at chassett@kean.edu. I look forward to seeing you at our first club meeting!  (Posted 9/12/14)

INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITY

There is an exciting internship opportunity with Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Union County.  

CASA has reached out to Kean inviting students to apply for internships.   CASA is nonprofit based out of the Union County Judiciary.  CASA recruits, trains, and supervises community volunteers to advocate for children in foster care. CASA also educates the community about the struggle children in foster care experience as well as how CASA can play an active role in the lives of the children it serves. The volunteer advocate assists the court in making decisions by gathering information about the child through file reviews, interviews, and first hand observation and making recommendations to the court. The volunteer advocate works closely with the Division of Child Protection and Permanency (formally DYFS), Family Court, Office of the Public Defender, Legal Aid, and other child serving agencies/institutions in order to advocate for the best interest of the child.

CASA's internship program runs during the Fall, Spring, and Summer terms. They offer an experience where a student is able to learn the ins and outs of a nonprofit organization, including grant writing, marketing, fundraising, and media out reach, as well as the social work aspect of what CASA's advocates accomplish. The student will engage with all different levels of individuals from the volunteers, court staff, lawyers, grantors, funders, etc.  This is a unique internship due to the fact CASA works with so many different agencies in the social service system.

Natalie Deo, CASA Internship Coordinator encourages students to ask questions and come and speak to to her about CASA and advocacy.  Please contact:
