Fox Butterfield, New York Times national correspondent;

Professor Darnell Hawkins, University of Illinois department of African-American Studies;

Professor Joan McCord, Temple University department of criminal justice;

Colorado Attorney General Gale Norton;

Professor David Garland, New York University School of Law;

The Law Review will publish a symposium issue composed of articles written by program speakers, to be available in the summer.
