Abstract
The 2014 SMU Criminal Justice Colloquium brought together scholars from across the country to discuss cutting-edge issues in criminal law and procedure. Headlined scholars Stephen Garvey, Albert Alschuler, Darryl Brown, Nancy King, Nancy Marder, and Ronald Wright have graciously contributed their articles to this Colloquium Issue. Their pieces explore the state’s authority to criminalize and punish, and how safeguards are necessary to ensure that actors within the criminal justice system are using their delegated powers responsibly.
