In addition, students will get to explore the different functions of the specialized units within the District Attorney’s Office, including the Special Victims Unit, Economic Crimes Unit, Cold Case Unit, Crime Scene Investigations, County Court and Juvenile Justice. Students also will have the chance to learn the intricacies of a jury trial.
Limited spaces are available. Preference will be given to applicants who live in the 18th Judicial District and are first-time students. Participants must be at least 18 years old, complete an application and pass a criminal-background check to be considered.
