In the Name of Justice: Leading Experts Reexamine the Classic Article "The Aims of the Criminal Law"

In 1958, the esteemed Harvard Law professor Henry M. Hart developed his theory of the proper aims of criminal law in his seminal article, "The Aims of the Criminal Law." In this collection of essays, practicing lawyers, judges and academics reexamine the traditional aims of the criminal law in light of recent statutory and jurisprudential changes. Prominent topics addressed include overcriminalization, the erosion of procedural protections for corporate defendants, and civil enforcement alternatives to criminal prosecution.

Tim Lynch, ed., Director, Cato Institute Criminal Justice Project (Cato Institute, 2009)
