"Beyond "Law & Order": Stanford Law School and the Criminal Justice System
April 13, 2011 6:00pm - 8:15pm
Despite the neat television story lines of Law & Order and CSI, the criminal justice system in the United States is broken in some profound ways. From representing clients accused of misdemeanors in municipal court, to clients facing a life imprisonment under California’s Three Strikes Law for minor felonies, to the wide range of criminal issues decided by the U.S. Supreme Court, Stanford Law School and its innovative clinical programs are making a difference throughout the justice system.
Lawrence C. Marshall, a nationally renowned advocate for reform of the U.S. criminal justice system and Professor of Law, Associate Dean for Clinical Education, and David & Stephanie Mills Director of the Mills Legal Clinic, will lead a roundtable discussion with recent clinic alumni focused on the problems with current rules and procedures, recent cases and possible remedies.
One general California MCLE credit will be offered.
