Registration and program information are now available on the APSAC Web site at www.apsac.org . See you in New Orleans! ________________________________ Featured Speakers Leon A. Cannizzaro, Jr. has served the citizens of New Orleans and their criminal justice system for his entire career. Since being elected District Attorney in November of 2008, Leon has worked aggressively to reform New Orleans’ criminal justice system and to protect the citizens of this city from violent criminals. Prior to being elected District Attorney, Leon served this community as a judge on the 4th Circuit Court of Appeal for five years. Additionally, he has served as a faculty member at the University of New Orleans and the Tulane University School of Law. He is a graduate of the University of New Orleans and earned a law degree from Loyola University School of Law. Ross Cheit, Professor of Political Science and Public Policy, joined the Brown faculty in 1986 coming from UC-Berkeley where he received his law degree and a PhD in public policy. His soon to be released book, The Witch-Hunt Narrative: Politics, Psychology, and the Sexual Abuse of Children empirically challenges the view that a series of high-profile cases in the 1980s and early 1990s were hoaxes. He shows how a narrative based on empirically thin evidence became a theory with real social force, and how that theory stood at odds with the reality of child sexual abuse. Elizabeth Bartholet is the Morris Wasserstein Public Interest Professor of Law and Faculty Director of the Child Advocacy Program (CAP), which she founded in the fall of 2004. She teaches civil rights and family law, specializing in child welfare, adoption, and reproductive technology. Before joining the Harvard Faculty, she was engaged in civil rights and public interest work, first with the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, and later as founder and director of the Legal Action Center, a non-profit organization in New York City focused on criminal justice and substance abuse issues. Bartholet graduated from Radcliffe College in 1962, and from Harvard Law School in 1965.
