2020 Symposium

Apprendi at 20
Friday, October 9, 2020

While most cases apply or expand existing law, in Apprendi v. New Jersey, the U.S. Supreme Court recognized a new constitutional right—the right to have aggravating sentencing factors found by a jury. The decision was handed down in 2000 and disrupted several decades of sentencing reform in Congress and the states. The 2020 North Carolina Law Review Symposium will mark the 20th anniversary of this dramatic change for the criminal justice system, bringing together a group of legal scholars experienced in criminal law and sentencing procedure.

Additional program information, as well as registration and CLE credit information will be posted in the coming months.
