Air times: Due Process airs on NJTV on Sundays at 9:30 AM and 7:00 PM
Due Process, a production of Rutgers School of Law–Newark and the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, is an award-winning, critically acclaimed weekly series on law and justice issues. Launched in 1996 at New Jersey Network, Due Process is in its 17th season with the same cutting edge coverage that has marked its long tenure.
Criminal law, civil law, consumer law, civil liberties law, Due Process has done them all.
Co-hosts for Due Process are Criminal Defense Attorney Raymond Brown and longtime Legal Journalist Sandra King. Sandy also writes, reports and produces Due Process along with Associate Producer Tania Ivanova.
Our recent programs include a two-part special, featuring an interview before a law school audience with US Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, and an examination of the ongoing balancing act between national security and civil liberties. In the last year, our topics have ranged from the nature of political corruption in New Jersey to the strides made towards diversity in the legal profession; from the struggle to pass the elusive “Dream Act” to the stark reality of solitary confinement in New Jersey’s prisons.
The bottom line for every Due Process episode is: Have we aired all sides of an issue? Have we made a real contribution to public education and the public interest – and have we explored cutting edge topics of law and social justice in a balanced, responsible way.
In fact, it is just our commitment to good journalism and basic fairness that has won Due Process scores of awards and honors, including 21 New York and Mid-Atlantic Emmys, and more than 80 Emmy nominations.
Major funding for Due Process is provided by The Fund for New Jersey and Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.
