College of Law Program Examines Struggle for Criminal Justice Reform

The July 19 shooting death of Samuel DuBose by a University of Cincinnati police officer has sparked outrage, anger and many questions. This panel presentation and community forum will present an opportunity for shared learning on this and other recent high-profile cases of police officers using lethal force in New York, Cleveland and Ferguson, Mo.

The discussion will be led by

Janet Moore

, an associate professor of law who teaches criminal law, criminal procedure, evidence, and civil rights litigation at UC's College of Law.

Other panelists include:

  • Iris Roley - As a community leader with the Cincinnati's Black United Front, Roley helped to lead the design and implementation of the Cincinnati Collaborative Agreement and has traveled across the country to assist other communities seeking similar models to improve policing and police community relations.
  • DeAnna Hoskins - The director of Hamilton County's Office of Reentry, Hoskins works with all criminal justice system stakeholders to ensure the successful transition of county offenders to the community. She holds a masters’ degree in criminal justice from UC and a BSW from the College of Mount St. Joseph. 
  • Student participants, UC College of Law Summer Institute for Law and Leadership - These high school students will reflect on what they learned  about criminal justice during their summer studies at the College of Law, and share their thoughts on strategies for improving justice systems.

This event will be held at the Meyers Gallery, located in the Steger Student Life Center at the University’s Clifton campus.
