The first Criminal Justice Policy Symposium, sponsored by the Duke Center for Criminal Justice and Professional Responsibility and the Duke Law Innocence Project, will be an exciting two-day event designed to raise awareness about current problems and propose solutions for the future. Thursday night will be highlighted by the premiere of a documentary about wrongful convictions, followed by a panel discussion with exonerees. On Friday, Reverend William Barber will deliver the event's keynote address and lunch will be provided. Students may participate in a Leadership Conference during the morning, practitioners are invited to a CLE on preparing an MAR, and everyone will come together for panel discussions on relevant policy topics in the afternoon.
