While each career varies greatly in many ways, they may all work towards the same goal: preservation of the legal system. Legal studies deals with the prosecution and protection of suspects in the court of law. Attorneys use their knowledge of the legal system and evidence provided by criminal justice professionals to defend their client or prove the guilt of a defendant. Without courts of law, the entire justice system would fall apart and the work of criminal justice professionals would be wasted. With no one to use the evidence gathered and analyzed by crime scene technicians, detectives, and others, the collection of that evidence would be wasted effort. The final stages of the justice system are in the court of law, and legal studies may provide the legal knowledge necessary to preserve the foundations of our legal system.
