Faculty

Our criminal law faculty offer diverse and wide-ranging experience in criminal law – while some have worked as prosecutors others have had careers as defense attorneys before joining the Law School. They produce influential scholarship on topics including corporate criminal conduct, policing in minority communities, juvenile justice, prosecution ethics, and theories of punishment. Our distinguished adjunct faculty in criminal law are noted leaders and practitioners in the field.

Faculty for the Center for Criminal Justice have been in the news recently. Professor Stacy Caplow’s Op-ed was published in the Jan. 8 Miami Herald on Executive Pardons for now Law-abiding Immigrants. Professor Caplow cites the work of students in the Law School’s Safe Harbor Project. Professor Jocelyn Simonson’s article “Bail Nullification” is the current SSRN Top Download for criminal law papers. The article will appear in the Michigan Law Review later this year.
