[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] Criminal Law: International Criminal Law & Immigration Law

Why it is relevant for ...

[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] as a Related Elective for those interested in Languages : Students interested in practicing criminal law should strongly consider learning the language(s) spoken by the people who are likely to be needing legal services in that community. It is also useful to have an appreciation of the different cultural groups in the region in which you intend to practice. Practitioners on both the defense and prosecution side note that recent immigrant groups often feel a mistrust of the police, and that it is useful for practitioners to understand their perceptions and their pressures when working with victims or witnesses in these populations as well as with the persons accused of criminal behavior. An appreciation of cultural background and assimilation pressures will contribute to a better understanding of why victims may recant their stories before trial and what contributes to domestic violence or repeated drug offenses in that community. This course covers specific Spanish vocabulary necessary to communicate in a variety of legal settings from direct client representation to community education and policy reform efforts.
