The Legitimacy of Law at a Crossroads

From the Supreme Court to presidential administration, from local criminal courts to state election bureaus, Americans of all political leanings are increasingly voicing skepticism about the legitimacy of our laws and legal institutions. Authors William Araiza (Rebuilding Expertise), Wilfred U. Codrington III, (co-author of The People’s Constitution: 200 Years, 27 Amendments, and the Promise of a More Perfect Union) and M. Chris Fabricant (Junk Science and the American Criminal Justice System) discuss current struggles to contend with the legitimacy of the Constitution, our courts, and our legal institutions in a time of political polarization. Presented by the Brooklyn Law School and moderated by Alexis Hoag-Fordjour, Assistant Professor, Brooklyn Law School.
