LAE Student Group Alpha Psi Omega

WHO ARE WE?

Lambda Alpha Epsilon (The Grand Chapter) is the National American Criminal Justice Association. We here at the University of Pittsburgh represent the Alpha Psi Omega chapter of region four. We are composed of Criminal Justice and Legal Studies Majors.

WHAT IS OUR MISSION?

Our mission is to connect as many Administrative Justice and Legal Studies Majors to employers already established in the field, as well as to educate members on the complexity of the criminal justice system. We also want to give back to the community and to pass on our knowledge in an attempt to strengthen the bonds in the community between those preparing to go into the field and the citizens they'll serve.

WHAT DO WE DO?

  • Go on trips to the Allegheny County Jail
  • Sit in on court cases
  • Go on trips to the Gun Range
  • Host study sessions
