Join us at the Racial Justice Act Symposium, a dynamic collaboration between the Berkeley Criminal Law & Justice Center and the Berkeley Journal of Criminal Law, bringing together public defenders, data scientists, legal scholars, and the author of the California RJA, Assemblymember Ash Kalra, who will deliver the keynote lecture. This Symposium aims to serve as an opportunity for strategic coordination, sharing of best practices and lessons learned, expert witness development, and more. Lawyers, scholars, expert witnesses, activists, organizers, and all those involved in defense side implementation of the RJA are encouraged to attend. Together we can help the RJA achieve its promise of eradicating racially biased convictions and sentences, and shape a fairer, more equitable legal landscape. RSVP here (required).
