Miriam Gohara

Publications

  • From Retribution to ‘Healing’: Changing How We Help Crime Survivors, The Crime Report, Apr. 25, 2022.
    Gohara published this op-ed in The Crime Report to commemorate National Crime Victims’ Rights Week. The op-ed distills ideas from a larger writing project Gohara is working on exploring relatively unknown histories of Black-led survivors’ movements. It suggests that organizations led by and serving African-American survivors of crime model healing and remedying structural injustices that cause African-Americans to bear a disproportionate brunt of crime, rather than retributive responses that dominant victims’ rights frameworks have promoted.

J.L. Pottenger Jr.

Other Professional Highlights

  • Named “Tapping Reeve Legal Educator of the Year” for 2021 by the Connecticut Bar Association and presented with the award on Apr. 20, 2022. Former recipients include YLS faculty Quintin Johnstone [2014] and Kate Stith [2018]. A former LSO Prison Clinic students, Jon Bauer ’84, was given this award for 2015. 
  • Two current Housing Clinic students argued in the Connecticut Appellate Court on Mar. 1. The case involves an appeal by a landlord from our victory after a two-day trial in the Housing Court, in which our client was awarded damages and equitable relief on her claims of poor housing conditions (vermin infestation). One student defended our trial-court victory against arguments that the New Haven Housing Code is unconstitutional. The other argued our cross-appeal, in which we are seeking a ruling that our client’s damages should have been based on the monthly “market rent,” not merely on her “tenant’s share” of the subsidized rental amount under the lease.
  • Several Housing Clinic students are defending depositions of individual, class-representative plaintiffs in our pending federal court civil rights case. Our clients claim that HUD and several local housing agencies violated the Fair Housing and Administrative Procedure Acts in mismanaging three fairly large-scale relocations from HUD-subsidized buildings in the North End of Hartford, in that the defendants “perpetuated segregation” by failing affirmatively to further fair housing.
