Event description

Description

From Ferguson to Chicago to Baton Rouge, the deeds of police and their lack of accountability have sparked outrage and fueled a modern day civil rights movement. Each death, from Eric Garner to Philando Castille, has shone a spotlight on the intersection of race, policing and the criminal justice system.

This Drexel Law Review Symposium will gather scholars and practitioners at the forefront of exploring anti-black policing, the school-to-prison pipeline, and the ethics of punishment. Speakers will turn a legal lens on police practices from the time of slavery to contemporary tactics that include no-knock warrants to stop-and-frisk and the excessive use of force.

The program will map out strategies for addressing and reversing troubling trends in race and policing, pointing to new directions that promote a more just path forward.

A RECEPTION FOLLOWS THE PROGRAM FROM 3:30 TO 5 PM
