This program is hosted Co-Hosted by the Ramsey County Law Library.

Deadline to Register Online: May 17, 2021.

The death of George Floyd nearly a year ago shook the nation and the world. Among other things, it refocused criminal law reformers on the continuing problems of racial disparities, over-incarceration, and the relationship between the police and the communities they serve. Professor Mark Osler, a former federal prosecutor and reform advocate who teaches at the University of St. Thomas, will talk about these swirling currents and what might come next.
Folllowing the presentation, a moderated discussion about the issues will be led by Erikka Ryan, Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at the bar association.
