The University of La Verne Law Review invites you to join us for an important conversation among scholars for this year’s symposium on The Realities of Mass Incarceration in America Today, with keynote speaker Bryan A. Stevenson, founder and Executive Director of the Equal Justice Incentive, and Professor at New York University School of Law. In addition to the keynote address by Mr. Stevenson, there will be three panels focused on sub-issues of the symposium. Each of these panels will be filled with other scholars that will bring together experts from various disciplines to provide insight into how mass incarceration relates to gender, racial and ethnic minorities, and the cradle to prison pipeline. Students, professors, practicing professionals, and other members of the community will be in attendance.
This year’s symposium will allow an opportunity for its guests to become current on the present and potential issues surrounding incarceration. After each panel, guests of the symposium will have an opportunity to ask the panelists questions and engage in interactive dialogue regarding the presentations. Each guest will also receive a USB device with materials relevant to each of the presentation given at the symposium.
This year’s symposium will be hosted at the College of Law on Friday April 8, 2016, from 10:00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. Lunch will be provided.
Free to attend for all, $75.00 for those who want CLE credit (pending).
