2nd Annual Robina Conference

Robina Institute of Criminal Law and Criminal Justice will be hosting its 2nd Annual Robina Conference titled "American Exceptionalism in Crime & Punishment" at the University of Minnesota Law School, Room 25 on April 25, 2013 beginning at 8:45am. The conference is free and open to the public.

The term "American exceptionalism" describes the tendency for US policies to diverge sharply from other Western countries. Building on the research of speakers Nicola Lacey and David Soskice, both of Oxford University, the conference will examine the case of American exceptionalism and will compare US criminal justice policies with those in other developed nations. The conference aims to develop proposals for how the US system might be reformed moving forward.
