I am pleased to announce that Widener University School of Law will host the first national conference on "crimtorts." "Crimtorts" refers to the expanding middle ground between criminal and tort law. The conference will take place on February 25, 2008 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. We have a fantastic lineup of speakers: Martha Chamallas (Ohio State), Mark Geistfeld (NYU), Keith Hylton (Boston University), Mary Kate Kearney (Widener), Tom Koenig (Northeastern Sociology), Jeffrey O'Connell (Virginia), Mike Rustad (Suffolk), Sheila Scheuerman (Charleston), Tony Sebok (Cardozo), Cathy Sharkey (NYU), Ken Simons (Boston University), and Byron Stier (Southwestern). I will post the brochure in the next few days. If you have any questions, please contact me, Chris Robinette, at (717) 541-3993 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make plans to join us.
