The 2014 North Carolina Law Review Symposium on "Vulnerable Defendants and the Criminal Justice System" highlighted the faculty in UNC's Clinical Programs. One of the co-chairs and coordinators of the Symposium was Prof. Tamar Birckhead, Director of Clinical Programs. Prof. Kathryn Sabbeth of the Civil Legal Assistance Clinic served as a panelist and discussed her research on the attorney's role when representing socially vulnerable defendants. Prof. Erika Wilson, also of the Civil Legal Assistance Clinic, served as the moderator on the panel on race and gender in the criminal justice system.
Speakers came from all over the United States to participate, and the Symposium was extremely well-attended, including being webcast live. The cutting edge scholarship presented will be published in one of the North Carolina Law Review's forthcoming 2015 issues.
