Criminal Justice Club

Liberty University Criminal Justice Club

Message From the Criminal Justice Club Board

The Criminal Justice Club is a student lead, student funded club.  Our mission is to help students connect with law enforcement from local, state and federal organizations in order to best pursue their desired field. We have listed previous speakers below that have come and spoke with the Club and are more than willing to help our students succeed in the law enforcement field. As students we recognize the stress and chaos classes and work may take on you so we also provide activities such as paintball, corn-hole, game days, and range days.

Membership is $25 dollars per year. This includes costs for food, t-shirts, certificates and any additional cost a special speaker or event may cost us. If in financial difficulty please contact Dr. Cox or Mr. Milnor in order to figure out a scholarship opportunity for the club.

Our Club has grown immensely over the past 2-3 years and has received recognition from our Dean, administration and law enforcement professionals. This club presents you with numerous opportunities as well as many friends/connections.

Be sure to connect with us on Facebook to hear about upcoming events!
