Law 906 Seminar: Sex Crimes
In this seminar, we will explore some of the themes and debates at the forefront of criminal law’s approach to sex crimes. During the first half of the semester, we will discuss at length concepts of agency and consent in the context of various sexual activities that have been criminalized. We will examine how the law constructs gender and sexuality, and discuss what role we think the law should play in regulating such activities. Against this backdrop, we will spend the second half of the semester reviewing some of current cutting edge legal issues in on-the-ground sex crimes law and procedure.
