About This Author
Jocelyn Simonson is Associate Professor at Brooklyn Law School, where she writes and teaches about criminal law, criminal procedure, evidence, and social change. She studies bottom-up interventions in the criminal legal system, such as bail funds, copwatching, courtwatching, and participatory defense, asking how these real-life interventions should inform our conceptions of the design of criminal justice institutions, the discourse of constitutional rights, and the meaning of democratic justice. Her article “Police Reform Through a Power Lens” is forthcoming in the Yale Law Journal. She tweets @j_simonson.
