The Justice Department Under Biden

Join the NYU Law' ACS Student Chapter for a chance to hear about the Department of Justice under the Biden administration. What does the new composition of the DOJ mean for the pursuit of progressive policy? How will a DOJ led by Merrick Garland, Lisa Monaco, and Vanita Gupta impact enforcement decisions? What institutional, legal, and political limitations do actors within the DOJ face in their ability to shape enforcement? What limits should there be? This expert panel will tackle these questions and their implications for voting, hate crimes, racial justice, and other pressing civil rights issues.
