Criminal Law Society

The Criminal Law Society (CLS) is dedicated to providing a forum for its members and the Law School at large to explore current discourse, issues, and interests in different areas of criminal law, including careers and opportunities. The Society has been a large and very active part of the Law School for several years, and today has over 75 members. Each year, the Criminal Law Society arranges special speaker events and symposiums on topics including exoneration of the wrongfully convicted, restorative justice, and the criminalization of homelessness. The Criminal Law Society is led by a five-member general executive board, and is assisted by 1L representatives chosen from among the Society. All members of the Law School community are welcome and invited to join.
