The Stanford Three Strikes Project is the only legal organization in the country devoted to representing individuals serving life sentences under California’s Three Strikes law, widely recognized as the harshest sentencing law in the United States. Since 2009, project students have led one of the country’s most successful criminal defense organizations, winning the early release of over a dozen clients.
Professor Lawrence C. Marshal, a nationally renowned advocate for reform of the U.S. criminal justice system, and a current Stanford Law School student will share their unique experiences representing individual clients and developing proposals for legislative reform of California’s sentencing law. The evening will also include an overview of Stanford’s innovative approaches to clinical teaching, legal ethics, and advocacy skills training.
