Upcoming Crawford Events

Crawford will be the focus at two events in the near future. If you know of other events please let me know and I will be glad to post a notice on the blog.

First, on this Friday, February 11, at the ABA Midyear Meeting, a tthe Hilton Salt Lake City Center, Meeting Salon I, Lobby Level, from 2 to 4 p.m., as part of its CLE session the Criminal Justice Section of the ABA will have a program titled Crawford v. Washington -- The Written Word. To see the program, click here. I suspectthere will be vigorous disagreement. The panelists include Cindy Dyer, a prosecutor whose suggested quesitons to responding officers I criticized in a post on this blog last week; Jeff Fisher, who argued Crawford; Erik Luna, of the University of Utah School of Law; and Dee Benson, a federal district judge in Utah.

Second, there will be a conference at Brooklyn School of Law on Friday, February 18, titled “Crawford and Beyond: Exploring the Future of the Confrontation Clause in Light of its Past.” The program is a full and well-designed one, with a wide array of paper topics, presenters, and commentators. To see the brochure for the conference, click here. To see the day's schedule, which has been updated since the brochure by the addition of speakers, or to register on-line, click here.
