The Criminal Law Faculty Seminar meets every Tuesday during the academic year. The approximately thirty participants are NYU criminal law faculty, visiting scholars, Center fellows, and NYU LLMs who specialize in criminal practice in their home countries. Seminar Presenters are criminal justice system policy makers and administrators, practitioners (judges prosecutors, defense lawyers) and leaders from NGOs, in addition to academics from NYU and other universities. Past speakers have come to us from U.S. Attorneys’ offices, the FBI, NYPD, the judiciary, the Vera Institute, Drug Policy Alliance, and the New York State Sentencing Commission, among other entities. On occasion, presenters from criminal law or criminology academics speak about recently published work or research in progress.
The seminar is supported, in part, by Ronald Goldstock, a long-time member of NYU’s adjunct faculty and former Director of the New York State Organized Crime Task Force.
The seminars are by invitation only and are convened by Prof. James B. Jacobs, the Director of the Center.
