Constitutional Protections: State v. Individual Interests - Which Should Prevail?

Wednesday, April 21, 2010
04:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The Criminal Law Society and the Criminal Law Brief will co-sponsor a symposium addressing hot-button issues in the field of criminal law. The panels will primarily focus on how to balance time-tested constitutional protections against the practical limitations of modern law enforcement. Leading authorities will discuss such issues as: mandatory minimum sentencing, drug law disparities, application of the death penalty, requirements for in-person testimony of law enforcement officials vs. offering affidavits, and immigration and human trafficking laws.
