W. R. Kenan Jr. Distinguished Professor of Public Law and Government, UNC-Chapel Hill
Think a messy criminal code doesn’t matter? Think again. North Carolina’s lack of a streamlined, comprehensive, orderly, and principled criminal code creates costly inefficiencies in the criminal justice system, opportunities for unfairness, and undermines the effectiveness of the criminal law. In this presentation, Professor Smith will explain why, and what we can do to fix it.
