Description: Michigan Law is honored to welcome Joshua Safran to South Hall to screen the film Crime After Crime. Joshua Safran is an attorney, writer, speaker, and occasional rabbi. He is a nationally recognized champion for women's rights and a zealous advocate for survivors of domestic violence and the wrongfully imprisoned. Crime After Crime premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and had its television debut as part of the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN)'s Documentary Film Club. The film tells the story of Deborah Peagler, a woman brutally abused by her boyfriend, and sentenced to 25 years-to-life for her connection to his murder. Twenty years later, as she languished in prison, a California law allowing incarcerated domestic-violence survivors to reopen their cases was passed.

Prof. Julian Mortenson will lead the discussion with Mr. Safran following the film!

Dinner will be provided. Co-sponsored by JLSA, FLP, OCP, WLSA, PROS, and Criminal Law Society.
