Law Review Symposium

Date: Friday, January 31, 2020
Time: 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Description: The 2020 Wake Forest Law Review symposium will shed light on the large, yet often unaddressed problem of pretrial detention in the U.S. The scope of pretrial detention is significant: over half a million people sit in jail at any given time in America merely because they have been accused of a crime. Such broad pretrial detention deprives people of their liberty before being afforded significant process, undermines the presumption of innocence, increases crime, negatively impacts families, and wastes tax dollars. The symposium will bring together criminal law stakeholders, academics, and community groups to discuss the current state of bail reform and how to continue reforming these systems. The symposium is free and open to the public.
