The College of Health and Public Affairs is pleased to announce that the Department of Criminal Justice and Legal Studies has split into two departments, effective July 1, 2010.
The Department of Criminal Justice is led by Dr. Robert Langworthy, chair of the Department of Criminal Justice and Legal Studies since 2007. The restructured department’s administrative offices are located in the former department’s offices in HPA I – Suite 311. Criminal justice faculty members continue to maintain offices on the third floor of HPA I.
UCF is ranked 10th among the nation’s top-producing institutions of books on criminal justice. Learn more at www.cohpa.ucf.edu/crim.jus.
The Department of Legal Studies is led by Dr. Pamela Kirby, interim chair,
associate dean for undergraduate studies and a member of the legal studies’ faculty. The department’s administrative offices are located in HPA I – Suite 343. Legal studies’ faculty members will continue to maintain offices on the third floor of HPA I, but they will relocate this summer to rooms closer to the department’s administrative suite.
The new department is home to the Mock Trial Team at UCF, one of the most competitive and successful organizations on campus in recent years. Learn more at www.cohpa.ucf.edu/legalstudies.
