Feedback form is now closed.
For many people of color, the daily surveillance and discriminatory encounters with police is overwhelming and traumatic. Tensions continue to grow as communities of color distrust law enforcement and resent the intrusion of police in their everyday lives. In this interactive session, participants will learn how police trauma, racial bias, and stereotype threat impact every stage of a criminal case, including client interviews, detention hearings, search and seizure, interrogation, trial theories involving a trauma-informed mens rea, sentencing, mitigation, and post-conviction matters. Participants will:
Become familiar with research on: traumatic effects of policing on people of color, stereotype threat, implicit racial bias
Think concretely about how this research affects the criminal justice system, from the client interview to the post-conviction proceedings
