Writers LIVE! Kristin Henning

Law professor and attorney Kristin Henning will explore the relationship between the police and Black children.  The author argues, through her 25 years of experience representing Black youth in Washington, DC’s juvenile courts, that the relationship is fraught with discriminatory policing.  The result is generations of Black children that are constantly under surveillance and unjustly criminalized.  Kristin Henning will be joined in conversation by University of Maryland School of Law Dean Renee Hutchins. 

Kristin Henning is a law professor and director of the Juvenile Justice Clinic and Initiative at the Georgetown University Law Center.  She is a former lead attorney of the Juvenile Unit at the Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia. 

Renée Hutchins is the dean of the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law.  She is also a former dean of the University of the District of Columbia School of Law.
