Letter from the editor, Volume XI, Issue II

We thank you for your continued interest in the Criminal Law Practitioner . With each issue, we strive to publish pieces that are not only exclusively focused on the arena of criminal law, but that engage with fascinating subject matter and prompt thought- provoking discussion . As the only student-run criminal law publication at the American University Washington College of Law, this is the culmination of an extraordinary amount of work by a talented and dedicated staff . I am both proud and fortunate to have the opportunity to work with them . I would like to thank our featured authors, Melissa Respeto, Dennis P . Chapman, and Karly Newcomb for their incredible pieces.

If you are interested in more of the Criminal Law Practitioner’s publications, please find us at for our past issues as well as our staff’s weekly blog on the latest issues in criminal law.

As Covid-19 hits the one-year mark of its existence in many of our lives, we hope that you and your families remain safe and in good health . Recent events in this country have shaken us to our core and have further illuminated the vast inequities that built and continue to drive our criminal legal system . And while the national conversation has been awakened this year, we must not forget that our efforts do not end with one victory or several . We hope you continue to join us in striving for justice.
