Location: Los Angeles, CA

NACDL's Race Matters II: “The Impact of Race on Criminal Justice” will be held at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles, California on January 10-11, 2019. Race Matters in our criminal justice system. It affects what happens from initial contact with police on the street, to the end of the case and everything in between. As part of being effective advocates for our clients, criminal defense lawyers face the challenge of confronting the difficult issues presented by race in America. This 2nd Annual event is designed to help practitioners identity and confront issues of Racial Bias in our courts, the law enforcement community, by prosecutors, and yes, even the defense team. Attendees will hear from trial lawyers, academics, and formally incarcerated individuals who will offer their personal perspectives, strategies, and ideas on why Race Matters. Participants will leave with both a greater understanding of the issues and innovative tools to apply this knowledge. This program has been created to intentionally challenge you to push the envelope on your understanding of and willingness to attack racial bias in the criminal justice system.
