Race Matters II: The Impact of Race on Criminal Justice
January 10-11, 2019
Los Angeles, California
Race Matters in our criminal justice system. It affects what happens from initial contact with police on the street, to the end of the case and everything in between. As part of being effective advocates for our clients, criminal defense lawyers face the challenge of confronting the difficult issues presented by race in America. This program was produced in partnership with the National Bar Association Criminal Law & Juvenile Justice Section.
