Please join us on Wednesday, October 21 at 12:10 p.m. (Eastern Time ) for the 10th Annual Bodiker Lecture on Criminal Justice, featuring Aya Gruber, Professor of Law at the University of Colorado.

The David H. Bodiker Lecture on Criminal Justice honors the legacy of David Bodiker ’63 by promoting, improving, and advancing the highest level of academic and professional interest in protecting the constitutional rights of the defendant in the criminal justice system. David was relentless in his advocacy for the rights of death row inmates, and the legacy of passion that he exuded in work and in life continues to inspire.

Professor Gruber is the author of “The Feminist War on Crime: The Unexpected Role of Women’s Liberation in Mass Incarceration”, the first book to trace American feminism’s contribution to mass imprisonment in the United States. She holds a BA in philosophy from U.C. Berkeley and a JD from Harvard Law School and has previously taught at the University of Iowa Law School and Harvard Law School. Gruber’s writings combine insights from practicing as a state and federal public defender with extensive research to articulate a feminist and racial critique of zero-tolerance laws made in the name of women. Her work has been cited by the New York Times, New Yorker, and Slate, among other outlets. Gruber is a member of the American Law Institute and frequent public commentator on criminal law issues, with appearances on ABC, NPR, and PBS.
