Chemerinsky, Starr and other Criminal Law Luminaries in Lubbock

Prof. Arnold Loewy yesterday hosted the Texas Tech Law Review Fourth Amendment Symposium, one of the finest conferences I have ever attended.  (Video here). The speakers were an all-star cast, but among the many highlights were Dean Ken Starr's partial defense of the exclusionary rule and reliance on constitutional law of other nations (Panel 3), Dean Erwin Chemerinsky's recap of the first years of the Roberts Court (Lunch Keynote), and Panel 1's evisceration of the Supreme Court's naive and crude misuses of history.  (Thanks, Aspen, Lexis and West for the food!)  The full line-up is below.

 Panel 1:  How important should history be to resolving 4th Amendment questions, and how well does the Supreme Court construe history? Morgan Cloud (Emory), Tom Davies (Tennessee), Andy Taslitz (Howard), George Thomas (Rutgers—Newark); Moderator:  Darryl Brown (Virginia).

Panel 2:  What values is the 4th Amendment intended to serve? Panelists:  Paul Butler (George Washington), Tom Clancy (Mississippi), Larry Rosenthal (Chapman), Fabio Arcila, Jr. (Touro); Moderator:  Wayne Logan (Florida State).

Panel 3:  Is the exclusionary rule an effective way of enforcing 4th Amendment values? Panelists:  Catherine Hancock (Tulane), David Harris (Pittsburgh), Ken Starr (Pepperdine), Scott Sundby (Washington & Lee); Moderator:  Ron Rychlak (Mississippi).
