How can Prosecutors Show Care for Criminal Justice Reform?
Monday, March 25, 2019, 12:15 p.m. - 1:45 p.m., Room 1B
Ongoing criminal justice reform efforts require input from all sides of a conflict, including prosecutors. While some assume that prosecutors, by enforcing punitive rhetoric can only contribute to the problem, many lose sight of the importance of prosecutors' roles in the solution. In this panel, Professor Kay Levine, will explore in depth with two local prosecutors the honest capacity in which prosecutors can show care about criminal justice reform. This intimate chat hopes to shed light on the depth of reform needed to have a fair criminal justice system without drawing opposing party lines between defense and prosecutorial attorneys.
