The Criminal Justice Policy Program undertakes legal and policy initiatives that meaningfully advance criminal justice reform.
We bring an array of tools to these initiatives:
- Legal and policy analysis designed to serve advocates or policymakers throughout the country
- Partnerships with government agencies to pilot and implement practical reforms
- Convenings structured to diagnose problems and chart concrete reforms
In addition to the program’s leadership and staff, Harvard Law School student-fellows contribute to all aspects of the program’s work. They engage in long-term projects designed to have a significant impact on cutting edge criminal justice issues at the local, state, and national level.
