About the World of Law & Order

"Drug abuse, organized crime, crowded prisons, the death penalty, police brutality. If the legal system is tangled up in a complicated debate, students of justice and law work to understand it. One of the real challenges you'll face is putting aside the opinions and emotions that crime and injustice stir up. Only then can you learn the skills you'll need to separate reality from fantasy and get at the facts."- CollegeBoard
Yet as you step on the road toward law, you must know that there are no quick solutions. This field requires a lot of time, patience, and dedication.
But know that whether you want to be a lawyer in court or a policeman on scene, you'll be giving one of the greatest gifts we as human beings can offer-- justice.

So how does one become an administator of justice?

A justice and law major will help you prepare for careers such as:
  • Law Enforcement Officer
  • Social Worker
  • Psychologist
  • Politician
  • Lawyer
  • Policy Maker

Whatever area of law one decides to specialize in, that is what their major will be. Of course the educational requirements for each career are different. For example, lawyers need to pass a certain test called the Bar exam. But generally as a student of justice and law, you'll do more than sit in a classroom and discuss issues-- internships are an important part of most programs. You might help counselors who work with recovering drug addicts on probation or you might sit through long nights by the phones at a rape-crisis hotline. You might help kids from a high-crime neighborhood in an after-school homework program or you might tutor prison inmates who are studying for their high-school diplomas. With these experinces, you will truly find out what justice is.
