Please join the Program in Law and Public Affairs for a 4:30 talk with Bernard Harcourt on The Fragility of Life: Rethinking Abolition More Broadly.
With the release of the movie Just Mercy and the opening of the Peace and Justice Memorial in Montgomery, Alabama, many are rethinking capital punishment in the USA and the movement for abolition more broadly. In this workshop, Professor Harcourt will explore questions of innocence and injustice, and the new context of abolition today.
