North Carolina Prisons and Jails in the Time of COVID-19: Professor Barbara Fedders
July 8, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
The country’s prisons and jails are well-known COVID-19 hot spots, and North Carolina is no exception. With help from law students and a recent graduate, Professor Barbara Fedders secured early release from prison of a man whose underlying medical conditions placed him at risk of severe complications from COVID-19 if he were to contract it. Join Professor Fedders, director of the Youth Justice Clinic, on Wednesday, July 8 to hear about her ongoing research and advocacy on behalf of vulnerable incarcerated people.
This is the first of a three-part faculty webinar series, Law in the Time of COVID-19.
