Castlegar Provincial Courthouse welcomes Selkirk College students

The class had the opportunity to spend an hour with Provincial Court Justice Robert Brown

The Selkirk College Law & Justice Studies Program cohort spent a day at the Provincial Courthouse in Castlegar earlier this week where Sheriff Dave Zarikoff slapped the cuffs on Instructor Jamie Bliss, but let him off for good behaviour and instead gave the group an excellent tour of the facility.

The class then had the opportunity to spend an hour with Provincial Court Justice Robert Brown where he provided valuable insight into his role in the system and answered questions.

This is the first cohort in the new two-year Law & Justice Studies diploma program which is designed to prepare learners for a career in the legal profession.

Students acquire the skills, training and support for a career in a variety of legal professions including law, law enforcement, paralegal, criminology, advocacy, social justice and legal security. The recent tour is just one example of the tremendous support the program has received from the wider legal community.

Applications are now being accepted for the 2018-2019 academic year which begins in September. You can find out more about the program and how to apply at http://www.selkirk.ca/program/law-and-justice-studies.
