Stanford Law Review Symposium: Media, Justice, and the Law
January 30, 2009 - January 31, 2009
12:00 - 6:00 p.m. Friday, January 30, 2009
9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Saturday, January 31, 2009
Stanford Law School
Sponsored by the Stanford Law Review and the Stanford Criminal Justice Center.
The symposium will bring together prominent legal scholars, practitioners, journalists, and other members of the media to discuss issues pertaining to media and criminal justice. As an emerging field of scholarship and debate, the intersection of media and the law has wide-ranging significance. The media (in all forms) interpret, report, and dramatize the law; moreover, the ongoing dialogue among legal actors, policymakers, the media, and the American public informs the opinions and behavior of all participants. This subject matter is timely and richly deserving of exploration, and we look forward to the opportunity to foster dialogue between a variety of diverse participants. We will specifically discuss the intended and unintended consequences of prosecutions in the news, popular perceptions of the criminal and the criminal justice process, and the future of criminal justice reporting.
