Department of Criminology, Law and Justice

Department of Criminology, Law and Justice The Department of Criminology, Law, and Justice prepares graduates for a broad range of professional roles in the criminal justice system, as well as the broader legal system.

The Department of Criminology, Law, and Justice is a thriving academic community of scholars, teachers and students who are dedicated to studying all aspects of crime and justice as well as societal reactions to both. We examine the social, cultural and political forces that shape the definitions and content of criminal law and influence policy choices about how to respond to particular crime problems. Further, we study the individual, social and structural forces that influence criminal behavior and examine the functioning of crime control systems. The members of our faculty are well-published leaders in their fields, and are dedicated to providing the best education possible to our undergraduate and graduate students.

NOTE ABOUT SUCCESS OF CLJ OPEN HOUSE FROM DEPARTMENT HEAD, LISA FROHMANN:

What a phenomenal event! I want to thank Peter Ibarra and LaTosha Traylor for all the logistical work organizing the open house. All the volunteer work from CJS made everything flow like clockwork. The atmosphere was celebratory and educational. The spirit and good will of al involved made this a success. Kelly Klinck, the LAS UG advisor raved about the event. The alumni panels demonstrated to our students that if they think outside the box, job opportunities are available. The tips they offered are heard differently when they come from practioners in the field.

Thank you to our current students who participated in the law enforcement panel: Marc Buslic, Jorge Ramirez, Stacy Dewald and Vickii Coffey who participated in the Social Service panel. I enjoyed listening to the Almethia Franklin, Paola Baldo, Dalibor Jurisic, and Aimee Wodda as you told us about your journey to graduate school and how you have changed since you have bee in
the program. Thank you for oewpning up and sharing your lives with the undergraduate students. I am sure it makes graduate school more real as well as proving contacts for those that need to talk more about the everyday life of a graduate student as they consider their futures.

Once again, Thank you.
Lisa

An Announcement From Graduate Student Ashlee Stephens On Absentee Voting:

Hello All,

Election Day is approaching -Tuesday, November 6, 2012! Here is some friendly advice on Absentee Voting, since many of us are in Chicago from out of state:

Check your home states Secretary of State website for an Absentee Ballot Application. For example, I am from Georgia, so my website is "sos.georgia.gov"

If you choose to mail your request in, also read the Application carefully, because it will tell you to return the Application to either your County's Clerk Office or Chief Registrar, or elsewhere.

Mail these requests in ASAP so that your home state will have ample time to send your ballot to Chicago and so that your vote is COUNTED!

Statistics are saying that 1 in 2 young people will NOT VOTE this coming election... Let's prove them wrong!

HAPPY VOTING!

-Ashlee M. Stephens

Sign & pass on to all you know, don't forget to affirm your signature on your email after you sign the petition. Impeach President Donald Trump for obstruction of Justice, refusing to HONOR the Constitution’s checks & balances petitioned by Jesha Miller click on “ WE THE PEOPLE “ then sign your name & email address, then check your email to affirm your signature. What he conceals is EVIDENCE of ABUSE OF POWER, CORRUPTION, DERELICTION OF DUTY, & IMPOSED SLAVERY BY THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT. https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/formal-impeachment-president-donald-trump-45th-president-united-states Here's some more information about this petition: President Trump has refused to HONOR the Constitution's checks & balances which uphold the integrity of the Constitution which is an obstruction of justice aiding & abetting criminal officials under Title 18 sec. 241, 242, & 243. What he conceals from the public is abuse of power in the U.S. Supreme Court imposing SLAVERY UNDER Article I, sec. 9 - powers denied government - Habeas Corpus - . This is for a citizen's immediate release who is held in violation of the Constitution & Laws of the U.S. So important is the Habeas Corpus is that the Constitution would never have been ratified without a way to secure the right to FREEDOM. A writ of habeas corpus is a legal action against unlawful detainment that commands a law enforcement agency or other body that has a person in custody to have a court inquire into the legality of the detention. The court may order the person released if the reason for detention is deemed insufficient or unjustifiable. The Constitution further provides that the privilege of the writ of habeas corpus may not be suspended "unless when in cases of rebellion or invasion the public safety may require it". [ See; governmentoppressionabuseofpower.blogspot.com for the evidence - Also there is dereliction of duty by former U.S. Supreme Court Justices Sandra Day O'Connor & John Paul Stevens who have a duty when addressed by Habeas Corpus to IMMEDIATELY check the records, if true, immediately release the citizen from the illegal restraint. ] The U.S. Supreme Court's motive was to conceal the Federal Crime by Indiana Vanderburgh County Judge David Kiely pursuant to Title 18 sec. 243 - excluding jurors on account of race & deny Jesha Miller 50 million dollars for the imposed SLAVERY. When a citizen's FREEDOM is taken without being duly processed in violation of the 14th amendment then it violates the 13th Amendment PROHIBITING SLAVERY. [ WAKE UP BLACK PEOPLE, WAKE UP AMERICA - this is what government is concealing from the the public. The U.S. Supreme Court has been caught committing AN ACT AGAINST THE LAW IMPOSING SLAVERY. This is ABUSE OF POWER WHICH JUSTIFIES THE USE OF THE CHECKS & BALANCES PETITIONED BY JESHA MILLER. SIGN the PETITION & EMAIL ADDRESS, THEN CHECK YOUR EMAIL TO VERIFY YOUR SIGNATURE, BECAUSE THE U.S. SUPREME COURT MUST BE CHECKED FOR CORRUPTION & THE EVIDENCE HAS THEM CAUGHT RED HANDED. ] We need 100,000 signatures so that Congress address's the checks & balances. Making BLACKS SECOND CLASS CITIZENS AGAIN - We are all ENTITLED TO A JURY OF OUR PEERS & there is a law against excluding member of your race. Excluding Blacks period puts a stigma on them, that they are inferior to be a part of the judicial process & renders us second class citizens again. [ Note to Black People - How we were re-enslaved after the abolishing of SLAVERY was to have a White Judge, white jury, white prosecutor, & white public defender. ] [ Note to white people & all American citizens. - Look at the transcripts on blog at - apcalledtoexposecorruption.blogspot.com & Judge David Kiely overruled both the State & Federal Constitution's right to a trial by a fair & impartial jury. This is taking ABSOLUTE POWER WITH TOTAL DISREGARD FOR CONSTITUTION & THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE - We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. See: formalimpeachmentofprestrump.blogspot for entire petition. President Donald Trump took an oath of office to uphold the Constitution so he does not want the office of President of the U.S. bad enough to uphold the Constitution’s checks & balances & therefore must be impeached for obstruction of justice concealing Federal crimes, oppression, & imposed SLAVERY from the public when Slavery is a prohibition government cannot do. Secretary of Treasury Steven Mnuchin was also petitioned to pay 145 million dollars for default of the 14th amendment & the miscarriage of justice imposing slavery by the Judicial Branch of government as well as inform President Trump of his duty to HONOR the constitution’s checks & balances so there is conspiracy involved to deny rights also.
