SynaVoice SOL is a virtual camp for high school students. Our mission is to provide exposure to new ideas, concepts, and skills that will inform college, career, and life choices for the students. Founded as a response to the parallel crises of the quarantine resulting from Covid 19 and the murder of George Floyd, we aim to create an environment where campers of all races can meet to engage in interesting and thought-provoking conversations.
"SynaVoice SOL is thrilled to have Jim Diamond, esteemed lawyer, author, and professor, leading our True Crime session. We know the campers will gain insights and appreciation of the criminal justice system as it really exists, not as it is portrayed on television", said Julie Rothhouse, SynaVoice SOL founder.
The one-week session True Crime: Introduction to Criminal Law and Criminal Cases commences on July 27. Dr. James D. Diamond is the Dean of Academic Affairs and a faculty member of the National Tribal Trial College where he teaches trial skills to students gaining certification as victims’ advocates in tribal courts for victims of domestic and sexual violence. From 2016 to 2019 Diamond was the Director of the Tribal Justice Clinic and Professor of Practice at the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law in Tucson.
Dr. Diamond is a former state prosecutor and experienced criminal lawyer with a colorful clientele. He is an astute observer of courts and the law and has extensive criminal trial experience. He was the lead lawyer in more than 1,000 criminal cases. He is the author of the recent book: After The Bloodbath: Is Healing Possible in The Wake of Rampage Shootings? Dr. Diamond is admitted to practice law in the states of Connecticut, New York and Arizona along with numerous federal courts, including the United States Supreme Court.
This camp session will provide a foundational understanding of the criminal justice system for the campers and explore topics like racial profiling and the impact of the law on teenagers. High school students can still register for the camp at the SynaVoice SOL website.
