Federalist Society Panel: “Overcriminalization” and Criminal Justice Reform

There is broad, bipartisan support for reforming the criminal justice system, and groups across the political spectrum have called on Congress to address the problem of “overcriminalization”— the overuse and misuse of criminal law. After the death of George Floyd, many criminal justice reform advocates argue that such conduct should not be illegal in the first place, or that laws prohibiting non-violent crimes should not be enforced. The Federalist Society will host a panel to discuss the issues surrounding overcriminalization, and how proposals to repeal or modify criminal laws may change the nature of policing. Panelists will include Kim Forde-Mazrui; Jason C. Johnson, Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund; Vikrant P. Reddy, Charles Koch Institute; Stephen F. Smith ’92, Notre Dame Law School; and moderator Barbara Armacost ’89Details and Registration.
