Women’s Rights in the Criminal Justice System
In light of the #metoo social movement, the American Criminal Law Review is hosting a symposium to address the intersectionality of women’s issues and criminal law.
In March 2019, the Symposium will encompass both crimes against women and the treatment of women within the criminal justice system. Ultimately, the goal of the ACLR Symposium is to spark discussion regarding a broader range of women’s issues within the American criminal law sphere. Scholars, practitioners, and policy makers will be discussing topics such as domestic violence, the victimization of women in custody, and women in organized crime.
The American Criminal Law Review’s 2019 Symposium is co-sponsored by the Georgetown Domestic Violence Clinic, the Georgetown Criminal Justice Clinic, and the Georgetown Defense & Prisoner Advocacy Clinic.
