DESCRIPTION:

In the past three years, long-simmering resentments about police practices and, more broadly, about harsh sentencing practices have dominated the news. Current policies and proposed reforms will be considered in light of the historical roots of key issues. Topics covered will include mass incarceration, drug policies, wrongful conviction of innocent persons, race and justice, money and justice, and prospects for meaningful reform. We’ll discuss possible changes in policies, practices, and law, and the impacts that such changes could have on the goal of a fair and effective justice system.
