The Limits of Federal Criminal Law

Thursday, December 08, 12:00 PMNational Press Club
Holeman Lounge
529 14th Street, NW
Washington, DC 20045

In the last year, the Department of Justice lost three major cases against Fed Ex, Vascular Solutions and Warner Chilcott. Critics argue that each case was an example of over-enforcement by DOJ and overcriminalization by Congress. Proponents assert that it is a critical role of government to police and dissuade bad acts by private citizens and corporations. Are there too many federal agencies, giving prosecutors too much power over individuals and corporations? Is it good policy to prosecute individual employees of a corporation, as suggested in the Yates memorandum? Panelists, including lawyers in each of these three cases, will discuss the limits of federal criminal law and prosecutions.

Join us Thursday, December 8, 2016 at 12:00 noon for a luncheon at the National Press Club to hear our legal experts debate the issues and arguments at stake in this important litigation. 

If you cannot join us live, we have added the option to view it in real time on the Federalist Society's blog page.

Presidential Conflicts?

Practice Group Teleforum Friday, December 09, 03:00 PMFederalist Society Teleforum Conference Call

“Suggestions that President-elect Donald Trump put his business holdings in a 'blind trust,' which would mean selling them to avoid potential conflicts of interest are unrealistic and unfair,” says David Rivkin, of Baker and Hostetler, in a recent Washington Post piece. University of Minnesota Law School Professor Richard Painter said, in a New York Times piece, that President-elect Trump’s announced plans to cure conflict-of-interest concerns are “not enough.”  Join us as these two legal scholars discuss their positions in greater detail.
