ABA CRIMINAL JUSTICE PRESENTATION AND NETWORKING RECEPTION – Thursday, April 14th at 5:00 p.m. in the Alma Jennings Student Lounge

Join the ABA Criminal Justice Section for a panel discussion entitled, Can Good People Be Good Prosecutors: A Discussion of the Role of Prosecutors in the Criminal Justice System. This insightful panel discussion will consider how an increase in minorities in public sector positions will reduce racial bias and disparity in the criminal justice system.

Additionally, the panelists, along with other invited guests, will serve as a resource for law students and young lawyers, highlighting the value of becoming active in the bar and providing real world examples of how professional associations can assist law students and young lawyers in their legal careers and enhance their opportunities now and in the future.

Attendees will have an opportunity to network with public sector agency representatives and receive information on how to obtain internships or permanent employment in the public sector at a reception following the panel discussion.
