Description

Investigative reporters have long covered errors in the justice system, but only recently have scholars and other experts been systematically examining these mistakes to discover patterns, and ways that flaws can be corrected to prevent their repetition. The director of a University of Pennsylvania program, the Quattrone Center for the Fair Administration of Justice, will describe its approach, as will a journalist who has written about it. We also will hear from a criminologist who will discuss use of data in justice system investigations by journalists, and from two reporters who investigated Southern Illinois authorities' failure to bring felony sex crime cases.
