Annual Public Law Review Symposia
Each year the Public Law Review holds an annual symposium. This year the symposium, Saving the Cities: How to Make America's Urban Core Sustainable in the Twenty-first Century, will be held on Friday, March 1, 2013 from 8:30 a.m. - 4:15 p.m. More information will follow soon.
Public Law Review's 2012 symposium on February 24, 2012 examined the exclusionary rule, and investigated more effective legal, sociological, and professional ways in which to influence and control police behavior.
On February 25, 2011, the symposium was titled A New Era for Plea Bargaining and Sentencing?: The Aftermath of Padilla v. Kentucky. The symposium addressed the impact of Padilla on plea bargaining and collateral issues affected by guilty pleas. Specifically, the issue addresses the impact of Padilla on prosecutors and defense attorneys during the plea bargaining negotiations and the role of collateral issues in the process, the impact of guilty pleas on immigration cases post-Padilla, and the impact of Padilla and collateral issues on sentencing guidelines, the sentencing process, and probation. Articles authored by the symposium presenters will be published in Volume 31, Issue 1.
