Criminal investigation is an area that is a natural fit for a social change mind-set. Because an investigation can result in extreme effects for both suspects and victims, it is important to scrutinize current practices, policies, and laws that may be discriminatory, biased, or simply ineffective.

From the work of the Innocence Project to free wrongly convicted individuals to grassroots efforts for ending the rape kit backlog, and from legislative advocacy to financial donation, the seeds of social change have been planted. However, there are many other avenues within the discipline that are ripe for social change.

This week, you reflect on how a practical change you have proposed may advance greater social change.


Students will:
