New York has been home to some of the most notable and notorious organized crime trials in American history. Join us as we discuss how some of these prosecutions were able to secure convictions. Participating in the program will be criminal judges and attorneys who can address the topic from all sides of the issue.
What happens when federal judges have a question of New York law they need resolved? And vice versa? This panel discussion will delve into this topic, looking at how such questions are answered and how state and federal judges communicate formally and informally to share their insights and approach to the law.
What do our laws look like during wartime? How do we control the violence of armed conflict? These are some of the questions that this program will examine through the experience of New York, where Abraham Lincoln's wartime restrictions on the free press played out and the predecessors of the Geneva Conventions were first developed.
