In honor of the scholarship and work of Professor Stephen Schulhofer, Robert B. McKay Professor of Law, the Annual Survey of American Law has partnered with the NYU Criminal Law Faculty to host an all-day conference entitled “Progress and Challenges in Criminal Justice and National Security” on April 26, 2019. The conference will be composed of five panels focused broadly on Policing and Racial Justice, Sexual Assault and Gender Justice, Surveillance and National Security, Plea Bargaining and Sentencing, and Systemic Criminal Justice Reform.

The panels will be comprised of leading scholars, judges, and practitioners in the criminal justice and national security fields, as well as Professor Schulhofer’s current and former students and colleagues. The panelists will assess progress and ongoing challenges in the areas that have been of central concern to Professor Schulhofer during his 45-year career.

Professor Schulhofer has had a distinguished academic career, writing over fifty scholarly articles and seven books that cover a variety of topics from police interrogation to national security to rape law. In addition, he currently serves as the reporter for the American Law Institute’s project to revise the sexual offense provisions of the Model Penal Code. Previously, Professor Schulhofer was the Julius Kreeger Professor of Law and director of the Center for Studies in Criminal Justice at the University of Chicago Law School, and was the Ferdinand Wakeman Hubbell Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. He completed his BA at Princeton University and his JD at Harvard Law School, both summa cum laude. He then clerked for two years for US Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black and practiced law for three years before beginning his academic career.
