The Friedman and Gilbert Criminal Justice Forum: David Cole - Beyond Ferguson: Can We End Mass Incarceration and Racial Disparity in Criminal Justice?

CLE credit: 
1.0 free hour pending
Weight:

Cleveland-Marshall College of Law will host The Friedman and Gilbert Criminal Justice Forum, "Beyond Ferguson: Can We End Mass Incarceration and Racial Disparity in Criminal Justice?" Wednesday, December 7 at 5 p.m. The lecture will be delivered by David Cole, the Hon. George J. Mitchell Professor in Law and Public Policy at Georgetown Law School.

About the Lecture:

Police shootings, stop-and-frisk, Black Lives Matter, and rising crime in some cities have brought renewed attention to the persistent challenge of living up to the challenge implied in the term "criminal justice." A new consensus seems to have emerged that we are incarcerating too many for too long, and that harsh street policing is not necessarily the best way to address inner-city poverty. But offering a vision for moving forward is always more difficult than criticizing the status quo. What can and should be done to bring justice to the criminal justice system, and what will it take?

About David Cole:

Cole is the Hon. George J. Mitchell Professor in Law and Public Policy at Georgetown Law, a regular contributor to the New York Review of Books, the legal affairs correspondent for The Nation, and an award-winning author of several books, including Enemy Aliens: Double Standards and Constitutional Freedoms in the War on Terrorism, which won the American Book Award. He has written for the New York Times, Washington Post, New Yorker, Atlantic, and New Republic, among many others. He has received many awards for his human rights work and advocacy, including the Inaugural Norman Dorsen Presidential Prize from the ACLU for lifetime commitment to civil liberties. He was an Open Society Foundations Fellow in 2014.

On Friday, November 18, the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law will host a day-long Criminal Justice Forum Symposium, "The Role of the Prosecutor and the Grand Jury In Police Use of Deadly Force Cases."

About the Lecture:

Events in Cleveland over the past few years have been at the center of the ongoing national debate over how the the criminal justice system should respond to cases involving police use of deadly force. Many states are considering changes to the rules governing prosecutors and grand juries, and Ohio is no exception. A task force created by the Ohio Supreme Court recently released a report suggesting a number of reforms to Ohio's grand jury rules, and those reforms are now under consideration.

These reforms, as well as other approaches from around the country, will be discussed at this symposium. Panelists will examine the potential conflicts facing prosecutors in cases involving police use of deadly force and consider proposals to mitigate those conflicts. Potential reforms to the grand jury process, such as modifying grand jury secrecy rules and giving the grand jury greater independence, will be analyzed. Panelists will also consider the role of race in police use of deadly force cases. 

PanelISTS:

The symposium will feature leading scholars from around the country, including Professors R. Michael Cassidy (Boston College Law School), Rebecca Roiphe (New York School of Law), Ric Simmons (Ohio State University Moritz College of Law), Jenali Jefferson Exum (University of Toledo College of Law), among others, as well as Cleveland-Marshall Law Professors Lolita Buckner Inniss and Jonathan Witmer-Rich.
