David A. Harris is a distinguished faculty scholar and professor at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, teaching courses in criminal law and criminal procedure. He is widely considered the leading national authority on police behavior and racial profiling in the United States. He has written and commented on a range of national security issues, including the police-involved deaths of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and Tamir Rice. A former public defender in the Washington, D.C., area, Harris possesses more than 30 years of experience in the legal profession.
Criminal Injustice discusses the always current, sometimes disturbing, frequently confusing and often shocking aspects of the American criminal justice system. Weekly episodes examine issues like police body cameras, racial biases, use of force and incarceration through wide-ranging interviews with national figures in the know. It’s not a lecture hall, and you don’t need a law degree to keep up. The podcast is, above all else, a conversation, capped with Harris’ “Lawyers Behaving Badly” bonus feature that pokes fun at the worst in the legal profession.
