Directors & Faculty
The Center is led by Co-directors Associate Professor Jocelyn Simonson, Assistant Professor of Clinical Law Kate Mogulescu, and Assistant Professor of Law Alexis Hoag. Our criminal law faculty offer diverse and wide-ranging experience in criminal law – while some have worked as prosecutors others have had careers as defense attorneys before joining the Law School. They produce influential scholarship on topics including corporate criminal conduct, policing in minority communities, juvenile justice, prosecution ethics, and theories of punishment. Our distinguished adjunct faculty in criminal law are noted leaders and practitioners in the field.
The Center for Criminal Justice offers courses, clinics, and a certificate taught by full-time faculty and distinguished adjunct professors to fully enrich your education in the criminal justice system.
The Center offers two fellowships for Brooklyn Law School students: The Criminal Justice Fellowship and the Pretrial Justice Fellowship. These fellowships create opportunities for students to support activities at Center as well as participate in trainings and pro bono work in a structured, supervised setting.
The Center for Criminal Justice annually awards generous post-graduate Fellowships to Brooklyn Law School alumni working at public criminal justice organizations for at least five years who commit to remain working in public service for at least two additional years. These recipients generally work in both prosecution and defender organizations.
