The Shared Burden of Overcriminalization

Anya Bidwell

In this seminar, we will discuss all facets of a growing problem in criminal justice:  overcriminalization.  Increasingly, busy lawmakers and unelected bureaucrats resort to the criminal justice system to take the lead in punishing behavior not traditionally seen as criminal, from earning a living free of government interference to the use of property as the owner sees fit.  Conservatives, liberals, and libertarians agree that this is a growing problem for the criminal justice system, and this gathering will discuss the contours of the problem, what limits can be put in place, and what can be done to begin to reverse the trend.
