This panel will explore critical issues in the criminal justice system through the participation of Harvard Law School’s Criminal Justice Institute, Judicial Process in Trial Courts clinic, Harvard Defenders, and Prison Legal Assistance Project. The event will be moderated by Clinical Professor Dehlia Umunna and feature conversations with judges, alumni, students, and their clients. We welcome alumni to join us in this provocative conversation. Bring your toughest questions: “Has lying to the tribunal gotten worse?” “Do verdicts reflect the truth?” “Does racial bias continuously contaminate jury trials?” “How can there be a just system when prosecutors and public defenders make peanuts?”

All alumni, student, and staff are invited.
