On a typical day in the United States, police officers make more than 50,000 traffic stops. A 2020 study undertaken by the Stanford Open Policing Project found significant racial disparities in traffic stops across the United States. This course will explore the intersection between race and traffic stops and discuss policies and practices to mitigate these disparities. Best practices for navigating media coverage in high profile cases will also be discussed.
Credit Hours: 1.5
As a result of this course, participants will be able to:
- Create awareness of racial disparities in traffic stops
- Issue rulings and make findings mindful of implicit biases and procedural fairness
- Describe best practices for handling media coverage issues that may arise in court
