About National Youth Leadership Forum: Law & CSI
Investigate Your Future
Are you ready to explore the exciting fields of law and CSI
while you gain the skills and experience you need to plan your future?
NYLF Law & CSI may be the single most valuable
opportunity you receive as a high school student. Through hands-on evidence
analysis and courtroom or forensic simulations, you will gain the edge you need
for college and a future career in law or crime scene investigation.
During the program, you will participate in your choice of
either a legal or CSI track, which will allow you to experience the world of
law and forensic science in a way that goes far beyond the classroom. At NYLF
Law & CSI, you will explore in-depth the entire judicial process; from the
discovery of a crime, through collecting and analyzing all of the evidence, to
preparing for the courtroom process and taking part in the criminal trial.
In the legal track, you will visit a local courthouse where
you will observe proceedings, listen to a panel of top professionals from
Washington law firms, and receive an introduction to the law school trajectory.
In the CSI track, you will attend an interactive panel with
university professors and forensic scientists who will discuss the latest
high-tech applications used during criminal investigations, and discover the career
paths that may shape your future.
In addition, a behind-the-scenes college experience at
George Mason University will give you new insight on the university admissions
process and campus life, including an admissions workshop and a campus tour.
By completing NYLF Law & CSI, you will be eligible for college credit from George Mason University.
The National Association of Secondary School Principals has placed this program on the 2018-19 NASSP List of Approved Contests, Programs, and Activities for Students.
