Off to Penn to talk about the Eighth Amendment

As highlighed in this official annoucnement, I am scheduled to speak this afternoon at the start of a very interesting symposium at University of Pennsylvania Law School.  The symposium is titled "Cruel and Unusual Punishment: Litigating Under the Eighth Amendment," and I hope that I will be able to talk more about this event in a series of posts over the next two days.  To start, however, check out this great line-up of participants:

  • Elizabeth Alexander (ACLU National Prison Project)
  • Stephen Bright (Southern Center for Human Rights)
  • Deborah Denno (Fordham University)
  • Sharon Dolovich (UCLA and Harvard University)
  • Richard Frase (University of Minnesota)
  • Sarah Hart (Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office)
  • Mark Kappelhoff (United States Department of Justice-Civil Rights Division)
  • Youngjae Lee (Fordham University)
  • Jules Lobel (University of Pittsburgh)
  • David Rudovsky (University of Pennsylvania)
  • Margo Schlanger (Washington University of St. Louis)
  • Carol Steiker (Harvard University)
  • Jordi Steiker (University of Texas-Austin)

PM UPDATE:  I have been treated so very well by all the Penn folks, and I got lots of insights from my co-panelists (Profs. Frase and Lee) this afternoon.

The death penalty panel is Bright, Denno, and the Steikers. Balance? We don't need no stinking balance!
