On Webisode 2 of UFFERMAN FILES, host Michael Ufferman will moderate a panel discussion on race in our criminal justice system. His distinguished guests are NACDL President Nellie L. King, ethics lawyer Brian Tannebaum (former FACDL president and author of “The Practice“), and criminal defense lawyer Brice Aikens (Florida Bar board certified in Criminal Trial and former division chief for the Orange County Public Defender’s Office).  The panel will discuss if — and how — race continues to be a factor in our system, in areas including pretrial detention, jury selection, trial arguments, and sentencing. This 90-minute presentation will be both provocative and educational for prosecutors, defenders, and judges alike.
