The Vanderbilt Criminal Law Association will be hosting a speaking event in Bennett Miller Room titled «The Law and Psychology of Wrongful Convictions» with Joseph Hoffmann, the Harry Pratter Professor of Law at the University of Indiana.

Professor Hoffmann received his BA from Harvard in 1978 and his JD from the University of Washington in 1984. Following law school, he clerked for the Honorable Phyllis A. Kravitch of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, and subsequently clerked for the Honorable William H. Rehnquist of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Professor Hoffmann is a nationally recognized authority on the death penalty, and has written extensively about habeas corpus and criminal procedure. His talk will focus on heuristics and cognitive biases, combining psychology and criminal convictions in taking a look at potential wrongful convictions in the criminal justice system.

This event is open to the public; lunch will be served.

Visitors should park in the Terrace Place Garage, spaces 41-92, at the corner of 21st Ave. South and Terrace Place, or the Wesley Place Garage, spaces 52-170, at the corner of 21st Ave. South and Scarritt Place.
