Award-winning journalist Nancy Mullane and former San Quentin inmates and murderers will offer a glimpse into the lives of convicted killers who have done their time and are now struggling to live on the outside again.  Mullane’s book, Life After Murder, follows five convicted murderers sentenced to life with the possibility of parole in their struggle for redemption, their legal battles to make good on the state’s promise of parole, and the lives they encounter after so many years inside. Can a murderer be redeemed? Who do they become after serving decades in prison? What does it take for a killer to be accepted back into society? Between 2000 and 2009, 57,000 people convicted of first or second-degree murder were released from state and federal prisons; their stories are both compelling and important. Presented by Berkeley Journal of Criminal Law. Lunch will be served.
