This week, the law school's Program on Race, Gender, and Policing brought together a panel of law enforcement officials and community activists and scholars for a panel discussion: Police De-Escalation: Reducing Force and Building Community Trust. This panel was covered by the Las Vegas Sun and KTNV. Thank you to the Mob Museum for hosting this event and Professor Frank Rudy Cooper and Professor Addie Rolnick for helping drive this important discussion in our community. 

Thanks to Professor Ruben Garcia, the American Constitution Society is hosting a Judges' Convening at the law school today and tomorrow bringing together judges and distinguished law professors from around the country. The event featured keynote speaker, exoneree, and now attorney and criminal justice advocate, Jarrett Adams. Panel discussions included:

  • Economic Inequality: The Next Frontier  
  • Working Towards Equality for Voters  
  • The Future of Criminal Justice Reform
  • Reimagining Checks & Balances
