This panel discussion is designed to initiate a dialogue between those in the Greater Boston area, who are working on criminal legal issues in imaginative ways that transcend the defender-prosecutor paradigm, and HLS students. Employing harm-reduction and restorative justice frameworks, among others, these activists, lawyers, organizers, and scholars think about criminal law beyond the court room. The panel features Fatema Ahmad of Muslim Justice League, Makis Antzoulatos of Committee for Public Counsel Services/National Lawyers Guild, Samantha Calero of Mijente Boston, and Kaia Stern of the Prison Studies Project/Harvard Graduate School of Education. Hosted by CJPP and HLS NLG. Moderated by CJPP Student Fellow, Michael Banerjee. Dinner will be served.
