Locked Up & Locked Out: Reforming Inequity in the Criminal Justice System
On Friday, April 8th from 9:00am-5:00pm, the Mitchell Hamline Law Review will be hosting their annual spring symposium. This year’s theme is Locked Up & Locked Out: Reforming Inequity in the Criminal Justice System.
The symposium panels will highlight and explore the deep fissures in our criminal justice system and feature discussions with lawyers and community leaders who are making change through their representation, advocacy, and leadership. Speakers will discuss some of the most pressing issues in this space, including missing and murdered Indigenous relatives, wrongful convictions, restorative justice in practice, juvenile diversion programs, and so much more. At the conclusion of the event, the keynote speaker, Anthony Ray Hinton, will share his decades-long journey to exoneration and freedom while surviving for 30 years on Alabama’s death row.
MHLR has partnered with the Native American Law Students Association (NALSA), the ACLU student chapter, the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Society, and the Black Law Students Association (BLSA) to bring you this event.
You can read more about the symposium on the MHLR website or in the Library’s Mitchell Hamline Symposiums guide.
