The CWU at Des Moines Law and Justice Club has been busy recently. In November 2010 the club toured the Seattle Metropolitan Police Museum. In December, the club sponsored two children in need, contributing gifts and gift cards so the children would have a merry Christmas. So far in 2011, January saw the club sponsoring a law school information panel for students considering law school, and a food drive in February collected over 200 pounds of food for a local food bank!
For ongoing information about the Des Moines LAJ Club and its activities, feel free to join the club's Facebook group.
In early February 2010, nine students from the CWU at Lynnwood Law and Justice Club attended the annual Western Society of Criminology conference in Vancouver, B.C. Organized by Professor Bob Moore, the students who attended were Jessica Lawson, Price Hozjan, Trevor Shelton, Riley Cornett, Leila Ford, Chelsea Cornwell, Ashleigh Erue, Keri Manchester, and Rogelio Jamero. Carpooling and sharing hotel rooms to keep costs to a minimum, the group arrived on Feb. 3 and enjoyed exploring Vancouver. They then attended both days of the conference, Feb. 4 and 5. All of the students were actively involved in the conference and attended many of the sessions, as well as the Saturday luncheon. Seven of the students are in Moore’s Research Methods class, and had a special interest in the research presented at the conference and gaining an understanding of how it related to their classwork. Moore says that all the students he has talked to greatly enjoyed the experience.
