Description

Since the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, civil unrest has spread throughout the United States, causing many American citizens to question racial equality in every corner of our society. In this episode we will explore one of those corners, the justice system, to discuss how our courts and judges are addressing the complex topic of racism and racial disparities. The panel also explores racial education programs for federal judges, the disparities in sentencing for Black men in the U.S., and the obligation judges and justices have to provide a justice system that works fairly for all Americans.


Moderated by David F. Levi, ALI President and Director of the Bolch Judicial Center at Duke Law School the panelists are:



  • Cheri Beasley, Chief Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court

  • Charles R. Breyer, U.S. District Court, Northern District of California

  • Goodwin Liu, California Supreme Court

  • Raymond J. Lohier, Jr., U.S. Court of Appeals, Second Circuit
