Criminal Justice Forum: Jeffrey Rosen discussing DNA Exonerations: How to Reform the Criminal Justice System to Avoid Convicting the Innocent

One of the challenges facing the criminal justice system is how to address and prevent the conviction of innocent persons. The availability of DNA testing has allowed us to identify individuals who have been wrongly convicted, and to identify factors that have contributed to those wrongful convictions, including faulty eyewitness identifications and confessions. Professor Rosen will discuss how we change the criminal justice system to prevent wrongful convictions in the first place. 

Jeffrey Rosen is a professor of law at The George Washington University and the legal affairs editor of The New Republic. He is a board member of the Mid Atlantic Innocence Project. His most recent book is "The Supreme Court: The Personalities and Rivalries that Defined America." He also is the author of "The Most Democratic Branch," "The Naked Crowd," and "The Unwanted Gaze." Rosen is a graduate of Harvard College, summa cum laude; Oxford University, where he was a Marshall Scholar; and Yale Law School.

Professor Rosen's essays and commentaries have appeared in the New York Times Magazine, The Atlantic Monthly, on National Public Radio, and in The New Yorker, where he has been a staff writer. The Chicago Tribune named him one of the 10 best magazine journalists in America and the L.A. Times called him, "the nation's most widely read and influential legal commentator."
