The Challenge of Crime in a Free Society: 50 Years Later
Thursday-Friday, The George Washington University Law School

Prof. Song Richardson is a featured participant at The George Washington Law Review Fall 2017 Symposium, The Challenge of Crime in a Free Society: 50 Years Later. This Symposium marks the 50th Anniversary of the Report by President Lyndon Johnson’s Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Justice, “The Challenge of Crime in a Free Society.” Led by Attorney General Nicholas deB. Katzenbach, the Commission compiled comprehensive data on crime in the United States, discussed the salient issues confronting the criminal justice system, and provided recommendations to address these problems. The Symposium will examine the essential issues of courts and procedure, technology, policing, corrections and sentencing, prosecution, the War on Drugs, and juvenile justice. The focus will be the future of the criminal justice system and what steps can be taken to achieve reform, particularly timely given the recent bi-partisan legislation proposing a new National Criminal Justice Reform Commission modeled on the Johnson Commission.

Oct. 27
The Discursive Turn in Copyright
8:30 a.m.–5:00 p.m., UCI Law

Copyright law is explicitly directed toward protection of artistic and aesthetic works, and is intended to provide a legal regime that fosters expressive authorship. But this interaction runs both ways; as copyright doctrine is adapted to the arts and humanities, so our understanding of arts and the humanities illuminates our understanding of copyright law. At this conference, speakers will explore how theories of literary and expressive works may be applied to the interpretation and application of copyright law, so as to better promote the progress of the expressive arts.
