The University of Wisconsin Law School presents Agency & Race in the Criminal System on Dec. 5, 2019.

See details below or on the conference website. CLE credits for Wisconsin attorneys pending.

The conference brings together scholars who examine how the criminal system denies agency to the defendant, and how the criminal system works to reflect and reaffirm racial hierarchies with a focus on how social, legal, and institutional dynamics have resulted in alarming racial disparities and a system-wide deprivation of defendant’s agency to participate in his own case. Panels are organized in the same order as the timeline of the criminal system: from the police encounter on the street, to pretrial detention, to pretrial information exchange, and sentencing.

Conference chair: Professor Ion Meyn, UW Law School
