2023 Race Matters Seminar

Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza, Cincinnati, OH

Agenda Faculty Hotel


Race Matters in our criminal legal 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.

NACDL invites you to its 6th Annual event in Cincinnati, OH, at the iconic Netherland Plaza Hotel for this powerful program designed to help practitioners identify and confront issues of Racial Bias in our courts, the law enforcement community, by prosecutors, and yes, even the defense team. Attendees will hear from a variety of trial lawyers, academics, and experts who will offer their personal perspectives, strategies, and ideas on why Race Matters. Participants will leave with both a greater understanding of the issues and innovative tools to apply this knowledge. This seminar has been created to intentionally challenge you to push the envelope on your understanding of and willingness to attack racial bias in the criminal legal system.

We hope you will join us!
