Prof. Alafair Burke Speaks at Penn Law Symposium on Criminal Justice Reform

Alafair S. Burke, Professor of Law and Hofstra Research Fellow

Professor Alafair Burke discussed her research about prosecutorial discretion and criminal discovery at the Quattrone Center for the Fair Administration of Justice 2017 Spring Symposium.

The topic of the symposium, which was held at the University of Pennsylvania Law School on April 20, was “Finding Common Ground: Preventing Errors in Criminal Justice.”

Professor Burke spoke as a member of the panel “Common Ground on Criminal Discovery and the Future of Brady v. Maryland.”

About the Symposium
As we embark upon a new Presidential administration characterized by an intensely partisan landscape, criminal justice reform – and in particular, reforms focused on improving the system’s safety, reliability, and legitimacy — can be rare opportunities for bipartisan collaboration and agreement. The Quattrone Center’s 2017 Spring Symposium, “Finding Common Ground: Preventing Errors In Criminal Justice,” will gather practitioners, scholars, community leaders, and others from all parts of the ideological spectrum to identify areas of agreement on important issues of reform, discuss groundbreaking approaches to improve the criminal justice system, and highlight issues where consensus is less certain.
