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 career experience, which will allow you to explore the world of
law and crime scene investigation in a way that goes far beyond the classroom. At NYLF
Law & CSI, you will cover the entire judicial process in-depth; 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.
As a student focusing on law, you will visit a local courthouse where
you will observe proceedings and perform a mock trial. You will also receive an introduction to the law school trajectory.
As a student focusing on CSI, 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, you will visit George Mason University for a behind-the-scenes college experience, including an admissions workshop and a campus tour, which will give you new insight on the university admissions
process and campus life.
The National Association of Secondary School Principals has placed this program on the 2019-20 NASSP List of Approved Contests, Programs, and Activities for Students.
