Back to Event Listing

November 8

12:00pm - 1:00pm


Audience: Current Student

Room 170 and Zoom (

Join us on November 8th, from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM, in Room 170 and on ZOOM for a transformative talk by Judge Allison Ernst from Colorado's 10th Judicial District. Explore specialty and treatment courts as Judge Ernst elucidates their pivotal, and increasingly relevant role in our criminal justice system. Issues of competency are a vital protection to the accused who are unable to adequately represent themselves, and treatment courts like Judge Ernst’s Veterans Court are reshaping our perspective, emphasizing rehabilitation over mere retribution. Whether in person or through Zoom, this is an opportunity you won’t want to miss!  

Enjoy lunch provided by our co-sponsors, DU's Health Law Society, Criminal Law Association, and the Career Development Office. Mark your calendars and learn how the landscape of our criminal courts is changing. This event will be streamed and recorded for anyone who cannot attend in-person; Judge Ernst will tentatively be speaking in-person.
