Webinar Faculty:  Alexander Shalom

About the Webinar:  NJ reformed it's bail system, but has required litigation to protect it and to ensure that the new system is liberty-promoting. Learn how it works, what's happened, and what's next.

About the Faculty:  Alexander Shalom is Senior Supervising Attorney at the ACLU-NJ. In that role, Alex primarily litigates cases on issues that disproportionately impact people of color. He appears in state and federal trial and appellate courts on cases addressing important criminal and juvenile justice issues. In the last few years he has appeared more than forty-five times before the New Jersey Supreme Court on cases focusing on issues including pretrial justice, the right to counsel, sentencing, and search and seizure. Before joining the ACLU-NJ, Alex worked as an Assistant Deputy Public Defender in Essex County. In 2017, the New Jersey Law Journal named him the Attorney of the Year.
