As part of being effective advocates for our clients, criminal defense practitioners face the challenge of confronting the difficult issues presented by race in America, and its court system. Race affects what happens in every criminal case, beginning with the initial police encounter on the street and the media attention, to pre-trial litigation, and throughout a trial. NACDL invites you to experience this powerful and illuminating annual event, which will be hosted in Baltimore, MD, at the Hilton Baltimore Inner Harbor Hotel.
