Misdemeanor Declination with Professor Alexandra Natapoff

TNH 2.138 (Blanton Classroom)

Join Professor Alexandra Natapoff, Lee S. Kreindler Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, while she discusses her article "Misdemeanor Declination: A Theory of Internal Separation of Powers" with Texas Law professors Lee Kovarsky and Jennifer Laurin. In the article, Professor Natapoff argues that criminal law theory should borrow from administrative law in designating prosecutors' misdemeanor declination powers as a type of internal separation of powers designed to curb police overreach. She argues that charging individuals with a misdemeanor should require more than the low bar of probable cause required for an arrest, and that prosecutors' rubber stamping of arrests is an abdication of their responsibility to conduct a more thorough review before bringing the full weight of the government's adversarial process against individuals.

Misdemeanor Declination is featured in Volume 102, Issue 5 of the Texas Law Review.

EmPOWERed for Public Interest Initiative: Mentorship Dinner

Join the Justice Center’s EmPOWERed for Public Interest Initiative for a Mentorship Dinner for public interest law students whose lived experiences intersect with the legal systems they seek to challenge in their careers. For example: students who have themselves or had family members become entangled in the criminal legal system who are interested in public defense work; immigrant students, or students who are the children or family members of immigrants seeking to challenge the immigration system; low-income students seeking to challenge laws and policy that further marginalize poor people such as predatory lending, cash bail, etc.

While this is not necessarily an event meant to pair each student with a mentor, the Justice Center hopes this will be a time for students to meet and form connections with attorneys who have overcome similar challenges. The Mentorship Dinner will be held on Thursday, April 11th, from 6:30-8:30 pm at Qi Austin: Modern Asian Kitchen.

There is no cost to attend this event, however, capacity for this event is limited. Applications are due by 11:59 p.m. (CT) on Monday, March 25th. Students will be notified whether they have been selected to attend on Monday, April 1st. Apply here:
