    Guns can be-and perhaps increasingly are-regulated outside the process we usually envision in which laws get debated and passed through the legislature.

    Traditionally conceived as a social service adjunct to public systems to address the needs of victims, restorative justice has increasingly been codified into state law and operationalized into multiple stages of formal legal processes, from pre-charge diversion to post-sentencing. In this talk, Professor Thalia González (Occidental, Georgetown Law) will argue the legal internalization of restorative justice has heightened the need for judges, attorneys, and advocates to not only understand it theoretically, but also pragmatically, as they must now make decisions regarding the use of and access to restorative justice at different stages of legal processes. Drawing on an original 50-state dataset of state statutes, court rules and regulations, she will discuss key empirical findings, implications, trends, and limitations of restorative justice laws in juvenile and criminal justice systems. She will also highlight critical ethical and constitutional considerations. Lunch will be provided. Sponsored by the Duke Criminal Law Society.

    The Fifth Amendment often gets a bad name from television and movies that portray it as merely a shield for the guilty. But the right against self-incrimination is one of the most important rights citizens hold in a free society. Grueling interrogations used to coerce confessions are a sign of a tyrannical state. And the burden of putting people behind bars must be on those who seek to do so--not those facing life-altering punishments. Professor Duane, a well-known speaker on this topic, is sure to spark your thinking about why we have the Fifth Amendment and how to help accused persons in your career.
