Policing in America Lecture Series Session #6: Activism and Engagement: What Can Lawyers Do?

April 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Lawyers and courts have played a central role in every major social movement in American history, from the labor movement to the civil rights movement to the LGBTQ movement. At the same time, law is often seen as part of the status quo and a barrier to change. This panel of Harvard Law School educators will discuss the role of law, lawyers, and scholarship in the current social movement for racial justice and change in the criminal system.

Speakers:

Premal Dharia, Executive Director of the Institute to End Mass Incarceration

Jeannie Suk Gersen, John H. Watson, Jr. Professor of Law

Dehlia Umunna, Clinical Professor of Law
