In 2016, the late Supreme Judicial Court Chief Justice Gants asked Harvard Law School to study racial disparities in the criminal legal system in Massachusetts. The Harvard researchers collected three years of data from the relevant agencies and conducted a comprehensive analysis of racial disparities in the criminal legal system. Participants will examine the data and gain an understanding of its use in litigating issues of race.
