Finding Humanity and Peace in Justice: Perspectives on Law Enforcement Reform

Public awareness of recent incidents, including the killing of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, has brought attention to the role of law enforcement and issues of racial profiling, brutality, over-policing, and the militarization of local police departments. As society struggles to address these systemic challenges, we are faced with contrasting arguments – that historically not much has changed, and that law enforcement has made great strides over the last few decades. Calls for reform have ranged from increasing diversity, enhancing training and outreach to defunding entire police departments.

The Center for Women of Law presents a panel to discuss the legal and practical implications of law enforcement reforms and the critical role that the legal community can play in helping to achieve peace and justice for all.
