ABOUT // DUE PROCESS


Due Process, winner of 25 New York and Mid-Atlantic Emmy Awards, is a unique production of Rutgers Law School and Rutgers University-Newark. The critically acclaimed weekly series on law and justice is in its 20th year with the same cutting edge coverage that has marked its long tenure.

Social and Criminal Justice, Urban Issues, Civil Rights, National Security, Government and Politics, Race and Class, Public Policy - these are the elements of the Due Process beat.

Award-winning journalist Sandra King hosts the weekly series, while writing, reporting and producing Due Process along with Co-Producer Tania Bentley. Guided by a mission to engage and educate the public television audience on the social, legal and policy issues that impact their lives, Due Process programs are marked by a commitment to present honest and unbiased coverage guided by the highest standards of public television journalism and production.

Our recent programs include a two-part special on DNA rape exonerations of those wrongly convicted and imprisoned, a profile of Newark's experimental "community court," and an America divided over what to do about marijuana.  In the last year, our topics have ranged from reform of the Newark Police to the fight for meaningful drug policy reform; from the complicity in slavery of the nation's most prestigious colleges to the stark reality of solitary confinement in New Jersey's prisons.

The bottom line for every Due Process episode is: Have we made a real contribution to public education and the public interest - and have we explored cutting edge topics of social justice and public policy in a balanced, responsible way?

In fact, it is just our commitment to good journalism, basic fairness and the principles of justice that has won Due Process scores of awards and honors, including 25 New York and Mid-Atlantic Emmys and more than 100 Emmy nominations.

In addition to our award-winning mini-docs, Due Process features spirited debate on critical issues, produced on-location in the moot courtroom at Rutgers Law School, and aired five times a week on WNET/13 and NJTV.
