Stinson and Hessick participate in criminal law symposium
recently participated in the Seventh Annual Criminal Law Symposium at Texas Tech University School of Law.
The topic of the symposium was juveniles and criminal law, and Hessick and Stinson presented their paper titled "Juveniles, Sex Offenses, and the Scope of Substantive Criminal Law," which will be published in the Texas Tech Law Review, along with the other papers presented at the symposium.
The project draws on Stinson's experience as a juvenile prosecutor, as well as Hessick's previous research on sex offenses.
The Symposium is one of the most respected criminal law and criminal procedure conferences in the country, and draws prominent scholars from many of the nation’s top law schools.
Stinson is Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. Her research and teaching focuses on legal method and writing, appellate advocacy, and sexual orientation and the law.
Hessick’s work focuses on aggravation and mitigation in criminal sentencing, the criminalization and punishment associated with child pornography, and other political and doctrinal issues associated with sentencing.
