Criminal Justice Concentration

Crime and punishment issues reverberate throughout our society. From TV studios to real-life courtroom drama, the criminal justice system is on display. Lawyers play a leading role in defining criminal justice, including prosecuting cases, defending the accused, representing victims' rights, managing prisons, pursuing appeals, and assessing our criminal justice system with an eye toward reform. The Pacific McGeorge Criminal Justice Concentration prepares students for careers in this vitally important field.
