Forum on Law & Crime Scene Investigation (CSI)
A Multi-Faceted Look at Crime and Punishment
At the heart of our legal system, near our highest courts and most advanced investigative facilities, Washington, D.C. is the perfect location for our brightest high school sophomores, juniors and seniors to examine all sides of the legal system at the Forum on Law and CSI. Students train under experts in law, forensic science, and ethics to receive a full understanding of the legal process.
- Mock trials encourage students to take the role of prosecutor, defender, or jury member, experiencing for themselves the struggle that each must undertake in the name of justice.
- In a CSI unit designed by one of the nation's leading pathologists, students engage in a full crime investigation, from collecting evidence at the scene to carefully evaluating it using sophisticated forensic science technologies.
- In career panels, experts in law, forensic science and criminal investigation provide students with insights into which legal fields might be right for them and how to succeed once their choice is made.
Whether they are interested in catching criminals or defending the accused, the Forum on Law and CSI takes outstanding teens out of the classroom, into the field and shows them the intricacies involved in finding the truth.
Space in this program is limited and will be filled in the order in which students enroll, so enroll now or, for more detailed program information, visit our dedicated website at www.nylf.org/law today.

"My experience at NYLF - Law was incredible. The staff provided an environment that stimulated learning and easily set up friendships. I took so much from each speaker, visit into the city of D.C. and the trial simulations. NYLF - Law provided me with valuable information about the field of law that will help me prepare for my career."
