Du Nord Craft Spirits
2610 E 32nd St
Minneapolis, MN 55406
We are excited to host this event at Du Nord Craft Spirits, a small batch distillery producing artisan gin, vodka, liqueurs and whiskeys. They are a “grain to glass” craft distillery, meaning they mill, mash, and distill their own product with ingredients sourced as locally as possible. On January 9, 2015, Du Nord opened the first cocktail room in the twin cities metro area. Serving only the spirits they make from scratch on-site, the cocktail room won “best cocktails” from the Minneapolis StarTribune; stop by to find out why!
Please RSVP as space is limited.

Laura Nirider is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Law and Co-Director of the Center on Wrongful Convictions of Youth (CWCY) at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law in Chicago.
Nirider represents individuals who were wrongfully convicted of crimes when they were children or teenagers. Her clients have included Brendan Dassey, whose case was profiled in the Netflix Global series Making a Murderer, and Damien Echols of the West Memphis Three, whose case was profiled in the documentary West of Memphis.

She is also a frequent presenter on interrogations at defender and law enforcement training conferences around the country and has been featured in film and television programs as an expert on interrogations. Recently, she co-authored an amicus curiae brief that was cited by the U.S. Supreme Court in J.D.B. v. North Carolina for the proposition that the risk of false confession is “all the more troubling…and all the more acute…when the subject of custodial interrogation is a juvenile.”Read More
