The Criminal Justice Symposium, hosted at the prestigious New York Law School Event Center, promises an enlightening exploration of the conditions behind bars. Join us on a journey to unveil the truths that lie within our justice system on February 1, 2024, from 3-5 pm.
Enhancing Public Awareness:
The primary purpose of this symposium is to enhance public awareness of the conditions of incarceration. Prisons and jails, often shrouded in secrecy, operate in the public’s name. It’s time to break the silence and take responsibility for the consequences that occur behind closed doors.
Do you ever wonder about the secrecy surrounding prison conditions? This event aims to answer that question, shedding light on the purposes served by secrecy and advocating for increased transparency. The harms that occur behind bars are a shared responsibility, and it’s crucial that we, as a society, face this reality.
Who Should Attend?
This symposium is not just for legal scholars; it’s for the general public, undergrad and graduate students, and policymakers alike. Whether you’re deeply entrenched in criminal justice issues or just starting to explore the topic, your presence is vital. This event is a call to action for all those who believe in justice and accountability.
What to Expect:

The Criminal Justice Symposium at New York Law School is more than an event; it’s a catalyst for change. As we come together on February 1, 2024, let’s not only learn about the conditions behind bars but also commit to creating a more just and transparent future.
