Gregg v. Georgia at Forty: The Modern American Death Penalty
In 1976, the Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty in the United States in Gregg v. Georgia. In the forty years since that historic decision, the legal landscape has changed significantly, and the use of capital punishment has been the subject of passionate public debate. As this anniversary presents a unique opportunity for reflection, join us for a conference that will bring together some of the nation’s leading death penalty experts and practitioners to share their diverse perspectives, reflect on the dynamic history of capital punishment in the United States, and discuss the issues impacting the law today.
Co-sponsored with the Capital Punishment Center, American Bar Association’s Death Penalty Due Process Review Project.
