Welcome to Law and Public Service (LPS)

  •                

    This dynamic Pathway is a four-year college preparatory program specifically designed for students with interest in legal, government or public service careers.  Shaped with substantial input from secondary and post-secondary educators and professionals in the law, law enforcement and advocacy fields, the curriculum of the Law and Public Service Pathway incorporates college preparatory courses and best practices identified by research.  

    A distinguishing feature of the curriculum is its integration of the traditionally isolated fields of law and law enforcement, social justice, and academic and career technical education.  A formal partnership with the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce connects students with local professionals in relevant fields. A pillar of our academy is our Teen Courtroom. In this courtroom our law students have the opportunity to hear real criminal cases every month. The LPS students are the jurrors on the various criminal proceedings. After hearing the cases LPS student jurrors will decide guilt or innocence and decide the rehabilitative punishment. This is an amazing opportunity for any student interested in the law career field.
