Gamma Chi Sigma - The Criminal Justice Club
Gamma Chi Sigma is a student run organization open to all Law and Justice Studies majors and minors. It is the local chapter of Lambda Alpha Epsilon, the American Criminal Justice Association. Professor Stanley Yeldell advises the group, which meets every other Monday in James Hall room 2095 from 11:00am-12pm.
The purpose of our organization is to further professionalism in all areas of criminal justice, whether as professionals or students. Additionally, involvement in Gamma Chi is a great way to meet other like-minded law and justice majors, network and learn about classes or professors.
As a student run organization Gamma Chi Sigma is what we make it, and currently we need interested law and justice students who want to make a substantial and positive contribution.
