Mark Rabil

Faith & Justice April Program

The Faith & Justice Committee’s 2018-19 Lunch and Speaker Series will continue on Thursday, April 25, at 12:15 p.m. in Colhoun A.

The program, “Unlocking the Truth in the Justice System,” will be presented by Mark Rabil, Clinical Professor of Law at Wake Forest University and Director of the Innocence & Justice Clinic at Wake Forest School of Law.

In these days with cries of “fake news” and an increasing awareness of our biases, do the methods of innocence clinics provide effective means of determining “what happened?”  What are the lessons of the more than 2,300 exonerations of innocent people wrongfully convicted by U.S. courts?  Is there hope?

Bring your own lunch. Beverages will be provided. All are welcome.
