Civil asset forfeiture is viewed by many as a powerful tool for use by law enforcement against criminals and criminal organizations - from drug dealers to terrorists and white collar criminals. But some believe forfeiture laws have the capacity to shift law enforcement priorities away from the pursuit of justice toward the pursuit of property and profit. Is it time for reform? Or are the critics wrong? Please join us over the lunch hour for a discussion with two experts in the field. 

  • Clark Neily, Senior Attorney, Institute for Justice 
  • David B. Smith, Partner, Smith & Zimmerman PLLC, and former DOJ Prosecutor
