Social Justice Lecture Series

What is justice? What does justice look like in the real world? What should it look like?

In this series of 8 lectures, Dr. David Smith will help us examine the many interpretations of both social and criminal justice that have been suggested throughout history and will help us evaluate proposals for change within American society.
