The UCLA School of Law is in the process of hiring the first executive director for the newly established Criminal Justice Program. The position is expected to be filled by July of 2017.
The executive director will work closely with Faculty Director Máximo Langer and other members of the law school faculty to support teaching, clinical opportunities, interdisciplinary study and policy analysis related to criminal justice. The Criminal Justice Program will engage in research on criminal justice issues, expand UCLA Law’s criminal justice policy engagements in Los Angeles, nationally and internationally, and create high-level training and pro bono opportunities for students to work in criminal justice. The program will also host symposia and other academic activities related to criminal justice.
"UCLA Law has strength across several areas in criminal justice," says Langer. "The new program and the executive director position present the opportunity to consolidate these strengths and create a rich teaching program, influence policy, and train generations of lawyers who will have a meaningful impact in the field."
