Fundamentals of Pretrial Justice — Spring 2017

Tuesday, April 25 - Tuesday, June 13, 2017

This six-week course is an intensive introduction to the basics of pretrial justice, including legal foundations, risk-based decision making throughout the pretrial process, and building effective pretrial systems. The course includes weekly live interactions with PJI faculty and guest speakers, an online community space for discussion with classmates, and self-directed assignments and activities to complete on your own schedule. 

This course is ideal for professionals new to pretrial, policymakers seeking a better understanding of pretrial justice concepts, or those exploring options to improve the efficacy of their pretrial system. Participants are asked to invest 4 to 6 hours per week in the course, and in that time will enjoy the benefit of experienced faculty, extensive resources, a small class size, and a curriculum focused on real-world applications.
