COURSE: Legal Studies 400 – Juvenile Justice with a Comparative Perspective

MEDIUM: Video Documentary

The 2010 Fall course, Legal Studies 400 – Juvenile Justice with a Comparative Perspective, taught by Professor Ralph Grunewald, was awarded the “ENGAGE Adaptation Award 2010.”

This award “encourages faculty to integrate Digital Media Assignments into their curriculum so students can connect course materials to larger questions, in and out of the classroom.” Our assignment was to make a short documentary about a significant actor within the juvenile justice system. The role that we selected is found within the public school environment, Police Liaisons. We critically researched the legal background of this role and developed a story board and a multi-media presentation in which we would reveal the realities of this role in contrast with our research.
