Educating the Next Generation of Criminal Law Practitioners
In collaboration with the criminal law faculty, the Criminal Justice Practice and Policy Institute was founded to improve the practice of criminal law through scholarship, practice skills training and engagement in policy reform. The Institute connects alumni working in criminal law with interested students to provide the legal and practical skills training needed to be successful.
Through the expertise and professional experience of the full time and adjunct faculty, the work of the Institute covers white collar crime, national security, public defense, prosecution, criminal justice policy, and other areas of domestic and international criminal law. The Institute also coordinates with the other highly successful programs at the Washington College of Law, including the Weinstein Trial Advocacy Program, the War Crimes Research Office, the Criminal Justice Clinic, and the Prison Rape Elimination Project.
