About Western Connecticut State University
The administration of justice and law in the United States today is as pervasive as the law itself. Accordingly, the mission of the Division of Justice and Law Administration (JLA) is to provide an integration of substantive and practical education in courses of study designed to prepare students for a variety of career choices in law, public service, social systems and private enterprises.
The division has as its primary purposes: A) to enhance the students’ abilities to reason, to communicate in written and verbal form, and to engage in scholarship; B) to fulfill students’ career goals in the areas of the administration of justice, the regulatory, protective or rehabilitative services, or the law-related professions; and C) to assist students in pursuing undergraduate and graduate level education in law, criminology, public administration, rehabilitation services, criminal justice and associated areas.
The Division of JLA offers the bachelor of science degree, a Minor in Justice Administration, and numerous undergraduate elective course offerings.
