On November 6, California voters will once again have an opportunity to alter the state’s death penalty laws. This time, voters will decide whether to abolish capital punishment in the state. Proposition 34, the SAFE California Act, would replace California’s death penalty with the sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole.
This program will address the fiscal and moral implications of capital punishment and what this ballot measure tells us about the status of the death penalty in our state and our nation.
This program is cosponsored by the School of Law's American Constitution Society, Criminal Justice Society, Federalist Society, International Human Rights Law Association and National Lawyers Guild.
The 2012-13 David J. Epstein Program in Public Interest Law and Policy Speaker Series is made possible by the generous support of the Margaret Levy Fund.
