Superior Court Judge to Speak on Police Profiling

Princeton, NJ -- New Jersey Superior Court Judge Travis L. Francis will give a lecture on "Police Profiling: Walking the Legal Tightrope" at Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs on Tuesday, November 30, at 4:30 p.m. in Robertson Hall, Bowl 1.

Judge Francis, who sits on the Middlesex County Criminal Court Bench, has held that post since 1992. He was previously a private practitioner in New Brunswick, NJ, where his practice included extensive criminal and civil litigation. He has a particular interest in the economic and social consequences of the international drug trade, including the alleged erosion of individual civil liberties and human rights.

Before entering private practice, he was a senior trial attorney for the Fireman's Fund Insurance Company, a trial attorney for the Prudential Insurance Company, and an Assistant Deputy Public Defender criminal defense attorney, in the Middlesex Country Public Defenders Office.

His talk is being sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School.
