In this presentation, Professor Brandon Garrett of Duke Law will provide an overview of new research projects seeking to make criminal justice more evidence based.  He will describe research projects designed to prevent wrongful convictions and improve accuracy in the criminal justice system, and he will describe work on sentencing, reentry and collateral consequences. He will also discuss planned collaborations between researchers and criminal justice actors in North Carolina, to improve outcomes in pre-trial decision-making, plea bargaining, and probation.
