Cliff Johnson, Director of the Roderick and Solange MacArthur Justice Center’s office at the University of Mississippi School of Law, addressed a recent international workshop in Sweden at the Raoul Wallenberg Institute (RWI) of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law. “This seminar is another way for the institute to foster the interface between theory and practice,” says RWI’s deputy director Rolf Ring. “Private practicing lawyers form an important part of the administration of justice chain and serve as a guarantee that access to justice and fair procedures are upheld in local jurisdictions.” The MacArthur Justice Center at Ole Miss Law works collaboratively with the MacArthur Justice Center offices in New Orleans and at the Northwestern University School of Law in Chicago to bring about meaningful and positive change in Mississippi through litigation of cases addressing systemic weaknesses in the state’s criminal justice and legal systems.
