The ALE is designed to meet the needs of today’s student. At HSGCA, students gain a deep appreciation for the law, and gain a unique understanding of the role that law plays in an ever changing world. The courses that we offer look at the criminal justice system through a variety of perspectives, and allow those who aspire to enter into a law related field the opportunity to gain practical experience. Speakers from a variety of legal institutions and the District Attorney’s Office are regularly invited to the school to visit classes, thus enriching our students’ educational experience. In addition, students who are part of our program learn how to deal with complex issues and are inspired to achieve.
