3d annual Shadow CrimProf Gathering at the Law and Society meeting

At Dan Markel's request, we reprint below a message he recently sent to the CrimProf listserv about next week's program in San Francisco. It looks like a great group of papers:

In anticipation of next week's 3d annual Shadow CrimProf Gathering at the Law and Society meeting in San Fran, I'm both attaching and pasting below the information regarding the ten panels we (Miriam Baer and I) have slated. You'll notice that our panels begin with "Criminal Justice 01, 02, etc"
As I understand it, all ten of our panels will be held in the same room, which is very convenient. Unfortunately, the preliminary program doesn't say what room that is in but once I know what it is next week, I'll share it here and on Prawfs.com
Presenters on these panels are sharing their drafts with the others on their panels, hopefully by today (I say shame-facedly and foot-draggingly). However, if you see a paper not on your panel that you'd like to read in advance of the presentation (or perhaps, perish the thought, you won't be able to make the presentation because of some conflict), then please reach out and email that person--I'm almost certain that people are excited to get feedback on these works in progress.
Last, Miriam Baer and I invite you all to join us at the Clock Bar around 9pm on Friday evening in the St. Francis Westin hotel for drinks and company. Please feel free to let either of us know in advance if you and others may be coming. All are welcome.
See you next week, and below is the schedule:

A Spectacular Non Sequitur

*David Gray (University of Maryland)

Reasonableness with Teeth: The Future of Fourth Amendment Reasonableness Analysis

*Cynthia K Lee (George Washington University)

Interrogation and the Roberts Court: Rules for "Fair Play," Not Protecting Vulnerable Suspects

*Jonathan Witmer-Rich (Cleveland State University)

Abstract:

Among the Fourth Amendment’s core concerns is the relationship between the public and police. Increasingly, that relationship has been subjected to reasonableness analysis. Though once predominant in the civil search context, increasingly reasonableness analysis has been moving into the criminal search and seizure context as well. This development has caused great concern among many commentators, as a move toward reasonableness has the potential for undermining traditional Fourth Amendment threshold protections. This panel will explore the implications of this move toward Fourth Amendment reasonableness, asking questions such as whether adequate protections of Fourth Amendment interests can exist under a reasonableness framework, and how Fourth Amendment doctrine should respond to reasonable mistakes. Also to be considered are the related issues of the exclusionary rule and modern developments under the Roberts Court in the law of police interrogation.

Privacy in the Workplace: City of Ontario v Quon

*Clifford S Fishman (Catholic University of America)

Consent-To-Search and Dignity

*Josephine Ross (Howard University)

Abstract:

This country is at a crossroads regarding privacy. Although the Fourth Amendment places limits on the ability of police to stop individuals and search them and their possessions, these rights are being eroded from a number of different angles. This session will discuss four of the ways that privacy is challenged, including the ever-expanding use of technology that tests long-standing substantive Fourth Amendment doctrine, the rules allowing the government to investigate its employees, the consent doctrine that allows police to search without any reason to believe the individual is in possession of something illicit, and the apparent authority doctrine that allows parents to consent to searches of their children even when these young individuals would not willingly give up their privacy. In many situations, it is the more vulnerable among us who are most likely to be expected to submit to pat-downs or full blown searches. We will offer an array of fixes to these conundrums and promise a lively debate.

DiscussantShima Baradaran (Brigham Young University) [email protected]

     

Abstract:

This panel will focus on research examining the roles of prosecutors and defense attorneys in the adversarial process. The papers will look at different aspects of the process, including prosecutorial charging decisions, the role of defense counsel in the pre- and post-adversarial stages, and the culture of prosecutors’ offices in shaping norms and practices. For instance, one paper will critically examine the Supreme Court’s recent cases regarding the right to counsel under the Sixth Amendment, while another looks at the possibility of defense attorneys bargaining collectively. A third paper will discuss institutional culture and norms that shape prosecutorial decision making based on interviews with state prosecutors in North Carolina and Georgia. A final paper examines the political and cultural context that facilitated a substantial legislative shift in North Carolina as to how courts are to review prosecutorial and jury decision making in death penalty cases.

ParticipantSusan Rozelle (Stetson University) [email protected]

ParticipantLaurent Sacharoff (University of Arkansas) [email protected]

ParticipantAndrew Taslitz (Howard University) [email protected]

Abstract:

The death penalty continues to be one of the most divisive issues in the United States. Past disputes, such as slavery and racial segregation, have been largely resolved. Yet, the debate over capital punishment persists. Proponents and opponents of capital punishment disagree about whether it is just, whether it deters, whether it is racist and just about every other issue associated with the death penalty. Both sides, however, seem to have reached a consensus about one thing: the system is broken. How did we end up with a system that both supporters and opponents of the death penalty would agree has become dysfunctional on all levels? The author places the blame primarily on the United States Supreme Court through an analysis of its death penalty jurisprudence.

ParticipantDena Gromet (University of Pennsylvania) [email protected]

ParticipantTom Tyler (New York University) [email protected]

Abstract:

The central contention of empirical desert is that adherence to societal views of “justice” will not only satisfy retributive urges but will also be as efficacious at controlling crime as a system that straightforwardly revolves around utilitarian purposes of punishment, because it will enhance the moral credibility of the law and therefore enhance compliance with it (Robinson, 2010). This roundtable will discuss data testing hypotheses that raise vulnerabilities in this argument, and offers insights from procedural justice, cognitive bias, and neurological perspectives.
