LAW 255 - Criminal Regulation of Vice Seminar.


Gambling, drug and alcohol abuse, and commercial sex -- pornography and prostitution -- are all regulated by criminal law. This advanced criminal law and legal theory seminar will focus on “Vice Crimes”: a special category of crimes that has traditionally been viewed as "victimless" and prosecuted primarily for the purpose of enforcing morality. We will explore the legal and theoretical aspects of criminal vice regulation, including debates about morality and harm, consent and coercion, and the implications of prohibition and enforcement. Students will be offered the option of writing one substantial research paper or four to five shorter papers. The research paper will be structured so that it will satisfy the upper-level writing requirement.Two hours.Buchhandler-Raphael
