A special opportunity … The Andrew Center purchased rights to show the Emmy award-winning documentary When Claude Got Shot at Eckstein Hall for our law students.  Professor Geske facilitates the victim/offender dialogue in the film. 

You’re welcome to join us for one or both programs – the film highlights the complexity of our juvenile and criminal justice systems. 

About the documentary: In Milwaukee, a 15-year-old attempted to carjack law student Claude Motley and shot him in the face.  Through multiple surgeries and catastrophic health care bills, the effects of gun violence upend Claude’s life.  Yet he still finds himself torn between punishment for the young man and the injustice for Black men and boys.  Can he find mercy in his heart for this attacker?
