Member Saturday: Lying, Plea Bargaining, and Justice
Members only. Registration required.
Join us for a thoughtful conversation on the surprising and sometimes troubling role that plea bargaining now plays within our criminal justice system. Led by Thea Johnson, a professor of law at Rutgers Law School, we will use real world examples to explore how and why lying has become a central part of the plea bargaining process and what that means for broader questions of justice.
Professor Thea Johnson is an Associate Professor of Law at Rutgers Law School where she teaches criminal law and procedure and writes about the role of plea bargaining in the criminal system. Johnson was formerly a Thomas C. Grey Fellow at Stanford Law School and a public defender with both the Federal Defenders of New York and the Criminal Defense Division of The Legal Aid Society in New York.
