Give us a brief summary of your experience?

Our trip to the Netherlands included visits to prisons, courts, juvenile and mental health facilities, government buildings, as well as many other historical and interesting sites.

How did this experience impact you academically?

This experience gave me the opportunity to learn about the Dutch criminal justice system and allow me to compare and contrast it to our own. I was able to learn through lectures but also from the stories of people whose lives are impacted by the justice system, which enhanced my overall experience.
