Student organizations that have done work on criminal justice and related phenomena include:
Criminal Justice Society
The UCLA Criminal Justice Society strives to advance justice by promoting criminal law dialogue, practice, reform, policy, scholarship and career development at UCLA. CJS seeks to promote a critical examination of the criminal justice system through the participation of an inclusive community of individuals who want to contribute to advances in criminal law practice, reform, scholarship and policymaking.
Immigration Law Society
The Immigration Law Society (IMLS) at UCLA seeks to educate students on issues impacting the immigrant community, as well as bridge a connection with immigration law academic scholars and practitioners. A primary focus of IMLS is to help law students volunteer with agencies that provide free or low-cost legal services for low-income immigrants. Students who volunteer with the VAWA Clinic work with attorneys at the Central American Resource Center to prepare declarations for victims of serious crimes, including domestic violence, in order to apply for U-Visas and Violence Against Women Act petitions.
International Justice Project
The UCLA International Justice Project (IJP) is a student-run extracurricular clinical program at UCLA School of Law. IJP partners law students with human rights organizations from around the world to provide firsthand experience with the practice of international human rights law. IJP helps students develop the basic skills and substantive knowledge necessary for international human rights and international justice advocacy. Students collaborate with partner organizations to draft legal memoranda and briefs, and to provide valuable international and comparative legal research.
International Human Rights Law Association
The International Human Rights Law Association provides a student-led forum for developing knowledge, sharing experiences, and promoting career opportunities within the field of international human rights law at UCLA School of Law.
