Policing Post-2020: Recipes for Review and Reform
April 12, 2021 | 12-1:30 p.m. 

The Carrico Center continues its popular Law Over Lunch CLE series with a program that explores how policing has undergone greater scrutiny within the past few years, the legislative and policy responses to this scrutiny, and what reforms may lead to sustainable change and progress.
 
Along with confronting a global pandemic, our country faced a reckoning of structural racism within the past year – especially within our criminal legal system. As both historical data and tragic events gained wider attention, efforts to rehabilitate, repair, and reform were undertaken by state and local governments, as well as communities and the courts.
 
Join the Carrico Center as we welcome Prof. Julie McConnell, Director of Richmond Law’s Children’s Defense Clinic, who, as both a former prosecutor and former public defender, brings a unique perspective on how we can review our current system for inequities. She will be joined by Prof. Jack Preis, a leading scholar in the field of qualified immunity and judicial review of government practice.
