Jointly presented by the Birmingham Bar Association, the Magic City Bar Association and the BBA Criminal Justice Section

The criminal justice system has been a major focus in the national and local news, especially in recent months, and it is a topic that we, as lawyers, should educate ourselves about and should talk about. The experts on this panel will discuss the goals of a criminal justice system, the reforms needed to meet those goals and how best to bring about those reforms.
