SPOTLIGHT: Berkeley Abolitionist Lawyering Project

BALP - Berkeley Abolitionist Lawyering Project

The purpose of this project is to support the work of Anti Police-Terror Project (APTP) through directed, legal-oriented research projects. This project is part of a larger interdisciplinary research effort to provide research-based recommendations to organizers who are on the frontlines of building community-led visions of safety, well-being, and justice in the Bay Area. As members of the SLP, law students will be contributing to key tasks related to this work. The project leverages a diversity of skills to synthesize and share research-driven models for community safety without policing.
