Daniel Hatcher's "Injustice, Inc." targets our profit-driven courts
Tom's next guest today is Daniel Hatcher. He’s a law professor in the University of Baltimore’s Saul Ewing Civil Advocacy Clinic. He's a former Maryland Legal Aid and Children's Defense Fund attorney, and has long been a scholar, advocate and teacher on issues of poverty and justice.
