The Center for American and International Law (CAIL) and Project Aletheia at John Jay College of Criminal Justice will be joining forces to host "Bridging the Gap Between Science and Practice of Interrogation" on September 27 at the American University Washington College of Law in Washington D.C.
Recent high-profile incidents involving police tactics have placed a national spotlight on eroding trust in the State, wrongful convictions resulting from false confessions, and calls for defunding the police and police reform. "Bridging the Gap Between Science and the Practice of Interrogation" will bring together leading academic, law enforcement, and legal experts to address these pressing issues in the context of emerging interrogation-related research - and discuss why it matters.
