The Federalist Society is pleased to host Professor Stephanos Bibas of the University of Pennsylvania Law School as our next guest in our luncheon lecture series. Prof. Bibas will be speaking on originalism and formalism in criminal procedure, or why Justice Scalia sometimes seems to be the unlikely friend of criminal defendants. His talk will compare the Supreme Court's recent Confrontation Clause jurisprudence, stemming from Crawford v. Washington, with the Court's decisions regarding the jury-trial right, stemming from Blakely v. Washington. Lunch will be provided. For more information,please contact Chris Berg at ctb18@duke.edu.
