As a national conversation over police abuse of Black and Brown people has emerged, many lawmakers and others are unveiling police reform measures.  Join us for a discussion of the various proposed pathways and approaches to police reform.  Our esteemed panel will tackle some of the principal tensions confronting our society today and address the challenges of advancing change in how policing and law enforcement is carried out in this country.  Also discussed will be how the legal profession can best participate in this conversation and play a productive role in bringing about effective and timely change.
