About This Episode

Women in the criminal justice system continue to face a number of different challenges and career barriers, especially as it relates to hiring, retention, and promotion. So, why are women lawyers underrepresented in criminal justice? Why do so many women leave the practice of criminal law? And what can we do about it? Joining the podcast to discuss these issues is law professor and author Maryam Ahranjani.

Maryam Ahranjani is an experienced law professor at the University of New Mexico (UNM), where she teaches in the areas of constitutional, criminal, and education law. She is also a textbook author, rule of law and human rights consultant, program manager and evaluator, and curriculum designer.
