University of Illinois College of Law Symposium

Federal Responses to Police Misconduct: Possibilities and Limits


Police misconduct—including racial profiling, excessive force, planting evidence, and lying under oath—has emerged as a major civil rights problem. What can the federal government do to respond? Which kinds of federal interventions are likely to succeed? How do principles of federalism limit the ability of the national government to respond to local police practices that infringe civil rights? Is there political momentum for reform? This symposium brings together the nation’s leading experts on policing to discuss and debate these important issues.
