  • “2019 Symposium: Latinx Communities, Race, and the Criminal Justice System”
    • “Organized by UCLA Law Review and BruinX, Office of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion, this event will draw leading practitioners and scholars from across the nation to examine different stages of the criminal justice system: policing; pre-trial detention and bail; assistance of counsel; voir dire; plea bargaining; guilt determinations; sentencing decisions, including capital sentencing decisions; and appeals. The central question to be explored is: How does bias against Latinos affect the criminal justice system’s processes and outcomes?  Across disciplines, and particularly in law, scholars have paid scant attention to this question. Thus, the experiences of Latinos remain thoroughly marginalized in debates about race and criminal justice.”
