In the United States, the most incarcerated country in the world, criminal justice reform is arguably the most important civil rights and social justice issue of our time. Philadelphia’s Public defender and District Attorney will co-teach a course on the future of criminal justice reform and what it requires of advocates on both sides as we move forward. Through this course students will learn how to meaningfully infuse policy into their advocacy and work on practical efforts to reverse the impact of mass incarceration. This course is a joint venture of Drexel, Temple and Penn Law Schools with students from each of the three schools. The majority of the class sessions will be held at Drexel’s Kline Institute for Trial Advocacy, 100-118 S. 12th Street, Philadelphia.
