Welcome to the law school’s master calendar!
Lunch with the Expert Featuring Professor Hadar Aviram
September 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join Prof. Hadar Aviram for a discussion of her recent book Yesterday’s Monsters: The Manson Family Cases and the Illusion of Parole (University of California Press, 2020.) Relying on 50 years’ worth of parole transcript hearings, interviews, and archival materials, the book tells the story of California’s approach to extreme punishment through the example of the Manson Family cases–a story that has important implications as to the COVID-19 disaster in California prisons.

She holds law and criminology degrees from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and a Ph.D. in Jurisprudence and Social Policy from UC Berkeley, where she studied as a Fulbright Fellow and a Regents Intern.

She served as President of the Western Society of Criminology and as a Trustee of the Law and Society Association and is currently the book review editor of the Law & Society Review. One of the leading voices in California and nationwide against mass incarceration, Professor Aviram is a frequent media commentator on politics, immigration, criminal justice policy, civil rights, the Trump Administration, and the Mueller Report.
