Defenders United: William Snowden

In “Defenders United” Episode 2, attorney William Snowden from Orleans Public Defenders discusses diversity in law school, Louisiana’s habitual offender statute, his non-profit The Juror Project, and Professor Paul Butler’s radical 1995 law review article “Racially Based Jury Nullification: Black Power in the Criminal Justice System.”
