CLE – Race & the Federal Justice System
On Tuesday, October 10, 2017, we were fortunate to have the Honorable Marcia G. Cooke, Federal Public Defender Michael Caruso, and Acting United States Attorney Benjamin G. Greenberg as panelists for this CLE seminar discussing some of the most pressing legal issues of today, including criminal justice reform, the role of implicit bias (if any) in criminal justice, and Washington’s impact on the day to day work of the Court, prosecutors, and public defenders. It was moderated by Marissell Descalzo of Tache Bronis, and held at Holland & Knight. Important topics were discussed at length and with great candor, such as the impact of the Sesssions Memo vs. the Holder Memo, the affect implicit bias has on daily life and in the courtroom, and issues pertaining to the sentencing guidelines. The conference room was full to capacity and our audience members engaged with the speakers on these very important topics as well.
A special thank you to our panelists, to our moderator, to the host law firm, and to all those who attended!
