Lineup Litigation · Articles and Studies
By aggressively pursuing novel legal strategies, The Bronx Defenders has won broad decisions, changing the way the law is applied in the Bronx. From ending a longstanding practice of the District Attorney's office that had the effect of discouraging community residents from appearing before the grand jury, to contesting the way line-ups are conducted throughout the city, the results of The Bronx Defenders' agressive fight for justice are apparent.
In keeping with the vision of the public defender as community resource and activist citizen, the Bronx Defenders encourages its staff to engage with the broader world. Half a dozen of its attorney's regularly appear on Court TV and other media outlets to discuss criminal justice issues. Senior staff teach trial skills and public defender management in sessions across the country. And several of the staff writes for publications as diverse as The NYU Review of Law and Social Change and The New York Times Magazine.
