TO CARRY THE LEGACY OF MY GRANDFATHER

After completing high school I was inspired by my grandfather (judge) and therefore wanted to pursue law. I applied in three to four top law schools in the USA and apparently was qualified in all of them. I decided to study at SUNY Old Westbury as it was a better option among other universities. I submitted the application form through the common application, the application fee was $50.


Course Curriculum - 

The major offers us an understanding of crime and delinquency and evaluates the utility of various crime control methods. It is highly relevant for me as I am seeking to advance in the fields of law enforcement. Some of the methods taught to us were legislative policies, policing, incarcerations, as well as preventive and restorative solutions.
