When NC Justice Academy graduates are no longer needed

New York-based NC Justice, which trains police officers, has closed its doors. 

Its alumni say it left them with little choice but to apply to other states to get their licenses. 

The academy is the last of what was once a network of hundreds of law schools. 

It began in 2000 with a class of just 13 graduates, but now has more than 6,000 graduates. 

A spokesman for the school told us its graduates are “the most qualified, hardworking and self-motivated young people in America.” 

NC Justice Academy was once a national model. 

More than 500 states have some form of academy. 

“The NC Justice model has been so successful that there are many more in the pipeline and that’s good news,” said John W. Stokes, the president of the Association of Law Academies of New York. 

But, he added, “the graduates are also leaving their mark on society. 

I think that the academy is a legacy that is going to be missed and a shame. 

There are so many people who have a great passion for the profession.” 

Stokes, a law professor at the University of Pennsylvania and the president and CEO of the association, has been a leader in the effort to close the academy.

“I’m not sure how much time is left to make this happen,” he said. 

For many law school graduates, they say, there was a lack of opportunity to go out and get a license to work. 

In New York, more than 1,000 law schools offered training to about 20,000 students last year, according to the National Law Center on Teacher Quality. 

NCJT was one of those schools, but it has not closed its door yet. 

Stores that have been selling NCJT training and certifications for years say they are struggling to keep up. 

Nelson Kastle, NCJTF’s chief executive officer, said it is a challenge for a school that has been doing well to maintain that level of training.

“When you’re a small law school, you don’t have that level [of accreditation], so we’re struggling with that,” he told us. 

While the school has a network in New York City, it has yet to establish a formal location. 

As for NCJTS graduates who have not applied, they have found a new way to get licenses.

Last year, about 70 graduates applied to the Academy of Criminal Justice, but the number of applicants has dropped dramatically. 

Since December, more students applied for NCJJT licenses than the school had in the same period last year. 

Another reason for the drop is that NCJTY graduates are applying for training in other states, not NCJTN’s. 

That has also caused some to wonder whether the academy’s closure will be felt across the nation. 

When NCJTT graduates go to other law schools, the academy may have to look for another source of training, said David Bier, a professor of criminal justice at the City University of New Jersey. 

Some law schools are closing because they can’t compete, he said, and some are closing for lack of funding. 

If a school has to shut down, it will have to close. 

According to the academy, it is offering training in “a wide variety of disciplines” at a variety of institutions. 

Last year, the law school was in the process of expanding its law school and it has already announced it is expanding to more cities. 

However, NCJJTT has not announced a location for the academy since the end of December. 

One of the academy graduates, a former prosecutor who is now a police officer in California, said the Academy has been an amazing experience and that NCJJTN graduates will continue to be a part of it. 

He said he is proud to work for the organization and hopes to someday be able to do the same.
