The mission of criminaljusticelaw.org is to provide students of the justice field with the tools needed to better prepare for careers in the field, whether in the United States or elsewhere.
Criminal Justice is not unique to America. Around the world, nations must combat threats to public safety and order. Law is but the first step in doing so. Needed throughout the world are professional law enforcement organizations and agents to ensure that law is both respected and followed. After this, there is a need to ensure that those who refuse to comply with laws for public order are either removed from society or reprimanded to an extent necessary to ensure future compliance.
This does not mean that compliance should be entirely compulsory, rather, that those who do not comply with laws should do so unless there is compelling reason to do otherwise. For instance, civil disobedience often serves a greater cause and rightfully so. The basic rights of man must be protected in the same way that the public at large must be protected.
In other words, we believe there must be a balance between protecting the public from each other and protecting the public from the government. To better achieve this balance on a global scale, this website encourages all readers to submit essays, engage with each other via comments, and submit information useful to the entire community.
As always, we encourage and ask for your input, which you may provide via the following form.
