Popular programs such as Serial and Conviction have brought the problem of wrongful conviction into sharp relief in the eyes of the public. But rather than fixing criminal justice mistakes that have already occurred, how can we prevent such errors in the first place? In this Penn to You evening, explore the work of the Quattrone Center for the Fair Administration of Justice at Penn Law, which is creating data and solutions to enable police, legal professionals, and the public to advance towards a higher quality, more accurate criminal justice system.

Please join the Penn community on Wednesday, February 1, in Miami for this exciting conversation followed by a networking reception.
