The tradition of criminal defending has deep historical roots in the United States, preceding our constitutional recognition of the right to counsel. John Adams’s defense of the Boston Tea Party instigators was an early example of this. This founding figure and second president of the United States, often revered as the nation’s first public defender, was undoubtedly asked the same question that criminal defense lawyers are universally met with today: “How do you defend those people?”

 

Common explanations include the importance of the constitutional rights of the accused, the failings of our criminal justice system and or the need for individuals to “have their day in court.” But the work of defense lawyers raises many more questions worthy of exploration. 

 

This Conference takes the “how” question head on, shifting the emphasis appropriately to: How do criminal defense attorneys defend? Criminal law scholars, many of whom have practiced as criminal lawyers will be brought together to help explore the unique role of defenders and advance theories on defending. The conference aspires to be the inaugural assembly of a recurring scholarly conversation among academics who think seriously about the world of criminal defense.
