This lecture explores retributive punishment and the potential puzzles that arise when giving people what they deserve. Even if one takes giving people what they negatively deserve to be intrinsically good, one must confront questions of distribution. First, does retributivism have anything to say about the form and timing of punishment or about how to select among the deserving? That is, if the state must pick a form of punishment or must choose the kinds of crime to focus upon, does retributivism contribute to these selection questions, or are they determined by other considerations? Second, should distributions take into account differential susceptibilities to punishment or prior undeserved suffering? For instance, should it matter that the rich and poor do not experience the same fine as equally punitive?

Student Profile: Personal Experience Lead Kim Cunningham to Health Care Law

Cleveland-Marshall College of Law student Kimberly Cunningham’s mother has been challenged with a chronic illness.  As Kim has helped care for her mother, she gained firsthand experience of the complexity of the appointments, medical bills and stacks of paperwork that have all been part of the medical process.  Thinking as a legal student, Kim became curious the role laws play in the process.

C|M|LAW Dean Lee Fisher's Message on Standing Against Hate

C|M|LAW Dean Lee Fisher's Message on Standing Against Hate

Earlier this week, a racist and anti-LGBTQ posting was found on Cleveland State University’s campus which urged LGBTQ students to kill themselves. These ugly and hateful postings are unacceptable and have been removed.

We all must strongly condemn the message presented in the postings. Harassment and abuse are unwelcome at Cleveland-Marshall and CSU. Threats of violence are not permitted whatsoever, and will not be tolerated. These cowardly acts undermine the mission and values of our academic community.
