A quick definition of environmental criminology:

Environmental criminology is the study of why crime happens in certain places. It looks at the environment and surroundings where crimes occur and tries to understand why criminals are active in those areas. This helps law enforcement and city planners to make changes that can prevent crime from happening in the future.

A more thorough explanation:

Environmental criminology is a branch of criminology that studies the relationship between crime and the environment. It focuses on understanding why certain areas are more prone to criminal activity and why offenders are active in those areas.

For example, environmental criminologists may study the layout of a city and how it affects crime rates. They may look at factors such as the presence of street lighting, the design of buildings, and the availability of escape routes for criminals. By understanding these factors, they can develop strategies to prevent crime and improve public safety.

Another example of environmental criminology is the study of crime in rural areas. Researchers may look at factors such as the distance between homes, the availability of transportation, and the presence of natural barriers like rivers or mountains. By understanding these factors, they can develop strategies to prevent crime and improve public safety in rural areas.

@georgiapeach88: I actually remember you from some of the first times I was on this site
Just out of curiosity: Do we think it's fair to say that the percentage of users of those site who continue to use it after their 1L starts, for those users who actually went or go to law school, is <1%?

I always think back to when I was anxious waiting for my lsat results one take. I went to the park and a parent let me play with their kid. I fixed his truck and he was hyped! He told me to “have a good time!” when I left haha. He’s our spirit animal!
