THE 2005 EDWARD SPARER SYMPOSIUM brought together leading attorneys, policy analysts, and academics to explore a variety of themes related to drug policy reform. Participants discussed the impact of the war on drugs on communities of color and the role that race plays in drug convictions. Also addressed were how federal courts could do a better job imposing more equitable sentences than the current sentencing guidelines do. Penn Law Practice Professor Louis Rulli and Senior Fellow David Rudovsky participated in the program, co-sponsored by the Public Interest Scholars Class of 2006.
