Tuesday, July 28, 2020
1:00 PM-2:00 PM
Drexel University’s Kline School of Law invites you to join scholars Jeannine Bell
(Indiana University) and Robert Kane (Drexel University) to learn how past attempts
to reform policing can inform discussions about police reform today.
The presentation on Tuesday, July 28, from 1 to 2 p.m. will be followed by a Q&A with
panelists as well as optional small group discussion sessions from 2 to 3 p.m.
Attendees who cannot watch the panel live may RSVP for a link to the recording and

Sponsored by the Center for Law, Policy, & Social Action, the Criminal Law Program,
