Professor Ron Wright is one of the nation’s best known criminal justice scholars. He is the co-author of two casebooks in criminal procedure and sentencing; his empirical research concentrates on the work of criminal prosecutors.

Professor Ron Wright has been interviewing prosecutors across North Carolina as part of his research regarding jury selection known as the “Jury Sunshine Project.” His research eventually will generate a database — the first of its kind — of jury selection outcomes in felony trials in all 100 counties of North Carolina. He will give a presentation about preliminary results, his research and findings at noon on Wednesday, Nov. 4,  in Worrell Professional Center, Room 1301. Lunch will be served.

The event is sponsored by The Criminal Law Roundtable (CLR), which is an organization committed to educating students about future careers and current topics of interest in the criminal law. CLR aims to promote interest and discussion regarding these topics by hosting speakers and events and sharing information about outside events of interest to CLR members. All students and faculty are invited to attend the events throughout the year and to sign up to be on the organization’s mailing list.
