“ENFORCEMENT AND SAFETY: FINDING A BALANCE”

 

 

You are invited to attend the inaugural Symposium and public launch of the Quattrone Center for the Fair Administration of Justice, “A Systems Approach to Conviction Integrity,” on April 4-5, 2014 at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. The Symposium gathers nationally recognized experts in criminal justice together with leading scholars in quality control and systems approaches to reducing error to discuss novel approaches to improving the fair administration of justice.

The Quattrone Center is a national research and policy hub created to catalyze long term structural improvements to the US criminal justice system. The Center takes an interdisciplinary, data-driven, scientific approach to identifying and analyzing the most crucial problems in the justice system, and proposing solutions that improve its fairness for the long term benefit of society. Its research and programs are independent and unbiased, engaging all parties — academia, judiciary, law enforcement, defense and prosecution, legislative, forensic and social scientists, media and other participants – required to effect substantial change for the better.

The Symposium is free and open to the public, but space is limited.
