Event Details

The Supreme Court’s decision in McCleskey v. Kemp—which upheld Georgia’s death penalty scheme despite powerful statistical evidence of race bias—drove civil rights lawyers to devise new tactics to expose racism in capital cases and block executions. Join Professor Justin Murray and Boston University Law School Professor Robert Tsai to discuss McCleskey v. Kemp and how progressive death penalty lawyers distinguished, leveraged, and subverted the decision while fighting to preserve their clients’ lives.
