Montana Justice Initiative

Criminal justice reform is one of the most pressing issues facing Montana and the nation, and one of the few issues that resonates across the political spectrum. In the fall of 2016, the Alexander Blewett III School of Law at the University of Montana launched an innovative interdisciplinary study of justice and its role, or absence, in Montana’s criminal justice system. Drawing on the expertise of faculty representing seven disciplines from across campus, the Montana Justice Initiative’s broad academic approach will provide a thorough analysis of justice and the criminal justice system that begins on campus and reverberates across the state.
