Community Education

Training Leaders and Advocates

OJPC engages in cross-sector community education to empower people to create a more fair, intelligent, redemptive justice system.

Tyra Patterson speaks to students at Turpin High School in Feb. 2018.


OJPC produces a range of informational guides to policy, law, and other issues related to the criminal justice system. Find our work here, along with external resources that can guide justice system learning.

Constitutional Litigation Clinic

Through the clinic, law students gain hands-on experience litigating civil rights cases. Our clinic has helped students carry legal advocacy into their future as lawyers, law makers, and leaders, and it provides much needed assistance for clients.

Summer Internships

Each summer, talented students in law, undergraduate, and community college receive training and guidance through OJPC’s summer internship program.
