Novel Justice: Radical Acts of Justice with Jocelyn Simonson

February 29, 2024 • 12:30 PM • Law School 4047

Jocelyn Simonson is a Professor of Law at Brooklyn Law School and the author of Radical Acts of Justice: How Ordinary People are Dismantling Incarceration. Simonson's scholarship explores bottom-up interventions in the criminal legal system, such as bail funds, copwatching, courtwatching, and participatory defense, asking how these real-life interventions should inform our conceptions of the design of criminal justice institutions, the discourse of constitutional rights, and the meaning of democratic justice. Join us for a discussion and Q&A moderated by Professor Brandon Garrett. Lunch will be provided. Sponsored by the Wilson Center for Science and Justice.
