Criminal Justice Forum: Crimmigrators

CLE credit: 
1.0 credit hours
Weight: 
-10

Since the events of September 11, 2001, crimmigration scholars around the world have uncovered the use of seemingly ordinary powers to accomplish extraordinary things: mass deportation, surveillance, policing, and detention and incarceration, in ways that globally change the shape of migration. While the study of crimmigration usually dissects its elements and the powers that animate it, we miss a critical question if we ignore who is tasked to use those powers. The decision about who will decide a crimmigration issue can shape the decision itself, and confine or define its resolution. Three case studies illuminate how changing the decisionmaker to or from a criminal justice actor to another official or institution located the issue itself inside or outside the crimmigration framework. These examples are the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), the REAL ID Act, and asylum seekers at the U.S.-Mexico border. They translate into three seemingly disparate legal issues: whether to deport, whether to issue a drivers license, and whether to hear a claim for asylum. These case studies raise the question of how changing the decisionmaker can either exacerbate crimmigration, or inoculate against it. At bottom, they are decisions about who belongs.

Facial recognition, Surveillance and privacy

Featured speaker: 

professor Brian e. ray

Director, Center for Cybersecurity and Privacy Protection

Leon and Gloria Plevin Professor of Law


Growing use of facial recognition technology and concerns over inherent bias as well as the risk of mass surveillance generally have prompted calls for stricter regulation and even bans. Several cities and counties have banned public agencies and a handful have prohibited private companies from using facial recognition or passed legislation to demand more transparency on how police use it and other surveillance tools. This talk will explore this push to regulate facial recognition and the concerns that have motivated it.

Professor Brian Ray has extensive experience in information governance, cybersecurity, and data privacy. He co-founded and directs the Center for Cybersecurity and Privacy Protection and edits the Center-sponsored SSRN Cybersecurity, Data Privacy and eDiscovery eJournal. Ray also co-founded the Cleveland eDiscovery, Data Security and Privacy Roundtable, an informal group of lawyers, judges and academics that meets monthly to discuss issues surrounding electronic discovery, cybersecurity and data privacy issues.

Criminal Justice Forum: Defense Dialogues: Representing the Accused Before International Criminal Tribunals

CLE credit: 
1.0 credit hours pending
Weight: 
-10

Those accused of international crimes such as genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes are often prosecuted by international criminal tribunals, as the International Criminal Court, the International Criminal Tribunal for Yugoslavia, the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, and others. Although accused of such grave crimes, these defendants enjoy due process rights and benefit from the presumption of innocence. Representing such defendants, however, poses unique challenges and requires particular expertise. Kate Gibson will discuss her experience as a criminal defense laywer before the most prominent international criminal tribunals. She will discuss issues such as procedural particularities, but also specialized defenses such as superior orders, necessity, insanity, mental disease, and duress. Finally, she will focus on differences between representing defendants before international tribunals, such as the International Criminal Court, and domestic tribunals.
