In a recent Essay for the Columbia Law Review, Brooklyn Law professor Jocelyn Simonson argues for a new vision of criminal procedure that lifts up and incorporates community interests and the voices of people directly impacted by the criminal legal system. Her Essay, "The Place of 'The People' in Criminal Procedure," is the latest in a body of work that explores forms of popular resistance and contestation in criminal law, including writings on community bail funds, copwatching programs, and court access.

Join CLR and the Public Defender Students for a conversation with Simonson about her Essay and the potential for change. Non-pizza lunch will be served.
