Join the ACS Athens Lawyer Chapter, the ACS University of Georgia School of Law Student Chapter, the University of Georgia School of Law Black Law Students Association, and ATHFactor-Liberty for a discussion with Professor Andrea L.

Rap on Trial is “a groundbreaking exposé about the alarming use of rap lyrics as criminal evidence to convict and incarcerate young men of color,” and our discussion, in addition to Professor Dennis, will include members of the Athens hip hop community, local lawyers, law students, and criminal justice reform activists.
