Talk about plum assignments: When Boston native Carrington Cazeau ’17 went to Washington, D.C., for an internship with the U.S. Marshals Service, he was one of only four assigned to the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. “Not many people get to work there,” says Cazeau, who is planning a career in federal law enforcement. With majors in psychology and justice studies, he’ll graduate from the UNH College of Liberal Arts with a B.A. degree later this month.
Watch the video of Carrington’s journey:

UNH College of Liberal Arts (COLA) students Julia Krank ’17, a dual psychology and justice studies major, and Patrick Sullivan ’17, a dual sociology and justice studies major, are two of approximately 850 American undergraduate students from 324 colleges and universities across the U.S. selected to receive the prestigious Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship, which is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Both Krank and Sullivan will be studying abroad this fall semester through the UNH COLA-managed justice studies program in Budapest, Hungary, that allows students to deepen their knowledge of modern European justice systems. Gilman scholars receive up to $5,000 to apply towards their study abroad or internship abroad costs. UNH student Kimberly Lavoie ’18, a wildlife and conservation biology major, also received a Gilman Scholarship.
UNH students can receive support on their Gilman applications from the Office of National Fellowships. For more information, contact Laura Perille.

Laurence Armand French, a senior researcher at Justiceworks and affiliate professor of justice studies, has published “Policing American Indians: A Unique Chapter in American Jurisprudence” (CRC Press), a book that examines the treatment of American Indians in the U.S. criminal justice system.
Bias, prejudice and corruption riddle the history of U.S. jurisprudence. “Policing American Indians” explores these injustices. A mix of academic research as well as field experience, this book draws on French’s more than 40 years of experience with American Indian individuals and groups. It illustrates how, despite changes in the law to correct past injustices, a subculture of discrimination often persists in law enforcement, whether by a prosecutor or a street cop.
French has published over 300 publications including 19 books. His most recent books are “Frog Town: Portrait of a French Canadian Parish in New England” (University Press of America, 2014), “War Trauma and its Aftermath: An International Perspective on the Balkan and Gulf Wars” (University Press of America, 2012), and “Running the Border Gauntlet: The Mexican Migrant Controversy” (Praeger, 2010).
This book is available from the publisher and major online retailers.
