Fall 2017 Distinguished Faculty Lecture

No Execution if Four Justices Object

Eric M. Freedman
Siggi B. Wilzig Distinguished Professor of Constitutional Rights, Maurice A. Deane School of Law

Death penalty cases have received a tremendous amount of attention in recent years. Some states have eliminated execution as a form of punishment while others have aggressively used it. For those facing the death penalty, their last hope is the U.S. Supreme Court. However, four justices are needed to review a case and five votes are required to stay an execution.

Professor Freedman’s lecture will review the history, policy and procedural nuances of the Supreme Court’s role in applying the death penalty, and provide recommendations for future Supreme Court policy.

Wednesday, November 15 | 11:15 a.m. - 12:40 p.m. | Hofstra University | Lowenfeld Conference and Exhibition Hall, Axinn Library, 10th Floor
