Paul Butler discusses prison abolition

March 10, 2020

Albert Brick Professor of Law at the Georgetown University Law Center Paul Butler spoke at Rutgers on Wednesday at an event called “Prison Abolition, and a Mule.” The event was hosted by the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy.

Butler focuses on racial disparities in criminal justice. As a former prosecutor for the District of Columbia, Butler said he realized he was one of many Black people in a courtroom. In one instance, he said he was not recognized by a judge and viewed only as another Black man being charged for a crime, causing him to focus more on this issue.
