Duke Law Launches New Criminal Justice Center Led By Brandon Garrett
Led by Brandon L. Garrett of Duke Law, the new Duke Center for Science and Justice will apply legal and scientific research to reforming the criminal justice system. Professor Garrett serves as an Associate Reporter for ALI’s Principles of the Law, Policing project.
The Center intends to “bring together faculty and students in law, medicine, public policy, and arts and sciences to pursue research, policy and law reform, and education in three areas: accuracy of evidence in criminal cases; the role of risk in criminal outcomes; and addressing a person’s treatment needs as an alternative to arrest and incarceration. It will also examine the needs of formerly incarcerated persons who are re-entering society.”
“At Duke Law School, we are building on our deep strengths in criminal law to create new opportunities for students and faculty to take the lead in studying and shaping approaches to criminal justice reform,” said Duke Law dean Kerry Abrams. “The Center for Science and Justice will be an integral part of educating students who aspire to make the criminal justice system of the future better and fairer for everyone.”
