An interdisciplinary symposium on the challenges of crime definition and proof related to the modern federal criminal offenses of fraud, corruption, and obstruction. For these offenses, the core issue is neither the act done nor the harm caused but the defendant's thoughts and intentions. Thus, adjudicating these cases demands new levels of sophistication in conceptualizing the guilty mind. Participants will include experts in law, ethics, psychology, and neuroscience. The symposium is hosted by Duke Law professors Lisa Kern Griffin, Sara Sun Beale, and Samuel Buell. For more information contact, Shaunda Helm at email@example.com.
