Task Force Launches

Acknowledging that the Criminal Justice Section must take the lead in addressing these issues, Lucian Dervan, current chair of the Criminal Justice Section, launched the Women in Criminal Justice Task Force at the 2018 Fall Meeting in November. The purpose of the Task Force is to publish findings and make policy and practice recommendations that outline the challenges women of diverse backgrounds face in a hard, institutionalized practice such as criminal law and offer cutting-edge solutions that our profession can use to spearhead reform—no small task.
