  • The facilitative role of the judge in moving criminal cases to disposition
  • Defense attorney challenges in representing clients in the current environment
  • Justice system partner collaboration in releasing pre-trial defendants from custody during the pandemic
  • Rebuilding public trust in the criminal justice system
