As so often demonstrated on Law & Order, all suspects are entitled to Miranda warnings while in police custody. But how do we determine when someone is "in custody" for the purpose of a 5th Amendment Miranda analysis? Is age a relevant consideration when contemplating a "reasonable person" in the same circumstances? The Supreme Court will decide on this issue this spring. Join Barbara Blackman, Counsel of Record for the Petitioner, and Professor Lisa Griffin as they respond to the oral arguments and discuss the implications of this case on our 5th Amendment jurisprudence and on juvenile adjudication generally. Sponsored by the Duke Journal of Constitutional Law and Public Policy and co-sponsored by the Duke Forum for Law and Social Change. This event will be webcast.
