Law and Justice

Law & Justice Logo

The APPS Law & Justice Administration Pathway prepares students for careers in Criminal Justice and Public Safety.  Students explore the many aspects of criminal justice and public safety through work-based learning experiences developed in collaboration with industry partners such as the Honolulu Police Department.  A unique experience exclusive to Law and Justice Administration students is a 2-day immersive performance-based assessment in which students are tasked with solving a realistic crime based on their abilities to work together, think critically, and solve problems as they arise.  Other opportunities include student internships at the First Circuit Court, the Lt. Governor’s Office, & the State Attorney General’s Office in the Department of Education section. 

Perseverance. Punctuality. Practice. Come be the change you want to see in the world!
