The Deason Center hosts conferences, symposia, and several lecture series. Events in the CJR Workshop, Deason Discussion, STAR Justice, and Doing the Work series are free and available on online.
The Center’s research focuses on the Sixth Amendment right to counsel, the exercise of prosecutorial charging discretion, and the operation of small, tribal, and rural (STAR) criminal legal systems.
The Center has its ‘boots on the ground’ in criminal practice. With a Sixth Amendment legal practice, a rural externship, and a robust advocacy agenda, the Center is making a difference in people’s lives.
