Dear LSJ Alumni: It was no small thing for me to enter a prison with a group of undergraduates. But there I was back in January, with 15 LSJ majors, getting ready to enter the Washington State Reformatory in Monroe. We were there for the University of Washington’s first-ever “mixed enrollment” course, where UW students and inmate students would take an entire class together in the same classroom. I was eager for this course, in large part because I knew that the LSJ students would make the most of an experience like this. And my confidence was rewarded, amply.
The Law, Societies, and Justice Program continues to host successful “Day of Service”. This year, the Program added another such event, due to widespread interest. First, and for the third straight year, a group of LSJ alumni, faculty and current students spent a February Saturday lending a helping hand to the Downtown Emergency Service Center (DESC).
On Monday, June 3rd the 2013-14 Law, Societies, and Justice honors class invited students and faculty alike to view the culmination of their work with a video presentation followed by a discussion of the project and its implications.
What do you do with an LSJ degree? While college is a time to expand perspectives and broaden horizons, most students are also concerned about the practical professional implications of their time in school. The question of what to do with a college degree can be a daunting one, so the Law, Societies, and Justice Program invited students to join a panel of LSJ alumni to hear stories about their diverse career paths and how to capitalize on different professional opportunities.
On Friday, May 30th, 4:30-6:30pm the LSJ Advisory Council invites all ages to the Big Time Brewery on the Ave for a social/happy hour with fellow students. We will convene at Big Time Brewing Company, located at 4133 University Way NE. Come meet fellow LSJ majors and celebrate the (almost) end of the quarter!
Once again, the Law, Societies, and Justice program assembled a group of current students, alumni, and faculty together for a “Day of Service” event, the second this year. After a successful service day at the Morrison building with the Downtown Emergency Services Center in February, the LSJ program came together for a day of landscaping and yard work at the Ryther, an organization committed to providing children and teens mental health and addiction treatment.
There will be two information sessions in Smith 40a, the first on Wednesday, May 14 at 12:30 p.m. and the second on Monday, May 19 at 1:30, for those who are interested in participating in the LSJ 474 “Geography and the Law” or the Book Club mixed enrollment opportunities at the Monroe Correctional Complex next year. Professor Herbert will be there to provide more in depth information about the two opportunities and to answer any questions that people may have.
