Course Description

The Criminal Law Colloquium is a forum for students to engage with their peers, our faculty, and invited scholars on cutting-edge issues in criminal law, criminal procedure, and criminal justice policy. Each week, we will focus on a scholar and read a sampling of their work; the following week, that scholar will join us to present their most recent work. Students will be expected to actively engage with, critique, and contribute to the development of this exciting new scholarship. What are the “big questions” animating the author’s work? What methodologies do scholars employ to answer those big questions? This course will be valuable to students interested in an “advanced topics in criminal law”-type offering, but it also may be valuable to those interested in legal academia generally.
