Voices From Inside: Whose System is it Anyway?
Tuesday, March 29, 2011
12:30 PM - 05:00 PM
American University Washington College of Law, Room 603
4801 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC
The Criminal Law Society and Criminal Law Brief will co-sponsor a symposium addressing a wide range of criminal law issues while focusing on the experiences of people involved in the criminal justice system. We will have panels discussing the following topics: a human rights approach to prison conditions in the United States, the collateral consequences of low level drug and sex offenses,white collar crime (focusing on the effect these offenses have on society and the retributive goal of sentencing), and the status of gang injunctions in America. Additionally, each panel will include a “voice from inside”; that is, we will have people charged with or convicted of the crimes join us to provide WCL with a different perspective.
