    Should Good People Be Prosecutors?:  A Spirited Discussion


    Professor Butler argues that people of good will should not be prosecutors because they add legitimacy to an unfair criminal justice system that has created extraordinary rates of incarceration and racial disparities.  Professor Meares challenges this view, arguing that prosecutors protect and respond to the needs of communities besieged by crime.  Come join this provocative debate between two former prosecutors.
