“Legal Ethics Panel,” Ninth Annual Prescription for Criminal Justice Forensics Program

Partner Jessica Ring Amunson spoke at the American Bar Association’s Ninth Annual Prescription for Criminal Justice Forensics Program.  A member of the Legal Ethics Panel, Ms. Amunson discussed an amicus brief that the firm has filed on behalf of 19 legal ethics scholars and The DKT Liberty Project.  The brief was written in the case of Committee for Public Service Counsel v. Attorney General, which is pending before the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts.  It argues that the Attorney General’s Office should bear some institutional responsibility for the misconduct that occurred in the wake of the Amherst drug lab scandals.  The program was held on June 1, 2018, in New York.
