The Dickson Poon School of Law presents the Kcrim: Michaelmas Hearings with Professor Gregg D. Caruso, Corning Community College, SUNY.
Title: 'Rejecting Retributivism: Free Will, Punishment, and Criminal Justice'
Amongst its programme of activities, KCrim convenes the Michaelmas Hearings, which bring together some of today's leading criminal law thinkers to discuss current legal issues affecting the United Kingdom, Europe, and the rest of the world. Each year, our speakers are expected to offer up for discussion some real problems in the theory and application of the criminal law, broadly understood.
Potential attendees of the Michaelmas Hearings should bear in mind that we shall generally commence substantive conversation as quickly as possible, without allowing much by way of presentation from the guest. Reading the paper in advance is, therefore, generally a prerequisite.
Papers are distributed after registration.
