Criminal Justice Student Day

Today’s students in criminal justice studies are the potential leaders of tomorrow’s jails. In recognition of these potential leaders, the American Jail Association is excited to invite criminal justice students to our Criminal Justice Student Day during our Annual Conference & Jail Expo.

The 7th Annual Criminal Justice Student Day on Tuesday, April 7, 2020 at the Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center gives students and future leaders in the field the opportunity to attend workshops, participate in a Q&A session with jail practitioners, and tour the Jail Expo.

This is a perfect time for students to network with and learn from those across the Nation with firsthand experience in the corrections profession. Students who wish to attend more than this one-day complimentary event may register at the student rate of $95.
