Still She Rises at University of Oklahoma College of Law

Our team was proud to present “Still She Rises, Tulsa: Representing Mothers in the Criminal Justice System" at the University of Oklahoma College of Law. Joe Harroz, Dean of the College of Law, introduced Robin Steinberg and several of our attorneys to students, faculty, and staff. OU Law has a growing public interest program and it was inspiring to meet so many students interested in dedicating their careers to public service in Oklahoma and beyond.

After the presentation, we sat down with students and dove deeper into some of the unique challenges mothers face in the criminal justice system, including the potential termination of their parental rights. We also discussed the rising numbers of incarcerated women in Oklahoma and what this means for the practice of public defense.
