#34: Groundbreaking Report on Racial and Ethnic Disparities in the Criminal Justice System – Part III
On July 17, 2013, The Association of Prosecuting Attorneys, the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law, the Foundation for Criminal Justice, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the Center for NuLeadership on Urban Solutions, and the New York County Lawyers’ Association released Criminal Justice in the 21st Century: Eliminating Racial and Ethnic Disparities in the Criminal Justice System, a critically important and inclusive examination of the profound racial and ethnic disparities in America’s criminal justice system, and concrete ways to overcome them. This conference report prepared by Professor Tanya E. Coke is based upon a multi-day, open and frank discussion among a distinguished group of criminal justice experts – prosecutors, judges, defense attorneys, scholars, community leaders, and formerly incarcerated advocates.
In this episode of The Criminal Docket, we hear from David LaBahn, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Association of Prosecuting Attorneys and Nicole Austin-Hillery, director and counsel of the Washington, D.C. office of the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law. Both the Association of Prosecuting Attorneys and the Brennan Center were co-sponsors of this important conference and report. Learn more about NACDL. Ivan J.
