The Four Pillars of Criminal Law

The primary officials in the criminal justice system are the police, the prosecutor, the defense attorney and the judge. How these officials interact can affect the outcome of a case, the job satisfaction and the reputation of the officials, and the perception of the legal system by ordinary citizens — especially witnesses, victims and defendants. Panelists will discuss how law governs these relationships, the impact of subjective perceptions and expectations, and real-world challenges to supporting a fair criminal justice system. This event is open to the Law School community. Box lunches will be available on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 12:30 p.m.
