Short Circuit 226 | Short Circuit Live Constitutional GPA

Recorded live at UCLA, we’re introducing a new study from the Institute for Justice: Constitutional G.P.A., is your Government Preventing Accountability? The study grades each state on how its citizens are able–or all too often, are not able–to hold government officials accountable when their rights are violated. It’s also a research tool you can use yourself. Hosted by IJ attorney Anya Bidwell we hear about three recent cases through the prism of the study. They are presented by UCLA law professor (and Chief Conspirator at the Volokh Conspiracy) Eugene Volokh, President of the National Police Accountability Project Julia Yoo, and California civil rights attorney Nicholas Yoka.

Feel free to follow along with us by checking out the interactive study here.
