Self-Incrimination Symposium

On March 2-3, Cardozo School of Law will host a two day symposium on self-incrimination entitled: “The Future of Self-Incrimination: Fifth Amendment, Confessions, and Guilty Pleas.” The symposium will take a fresh look at the use of confessions and guilty pleas as a means to establishing a criminal defendant’s guilt. Specifically, it will discuss the Fifth Amendment and common law protections against coerced confessions, plea bargaining and the vanishing trial phenomenon, and the relationship between pleas and sentencing, and a number of related issues.
