Recent Changes in Nebraska Criminal Law – Positive Reform or Passing the Buck?
Friday, September 22, 2017

Professor Steven J. Schmidt; University of Nebraska College of Law; Lincoln, Nebraska

Nebraska criminal law has undergone sweeping changes in the past few years with the passage of several new laws billed as criminal justice reform.  Penalties for criminal conduct have been reduced, post-release supervision has been established, certain entries in criminal histories are automatically sealed and bail considerations have been changed. But are we safer? Are we reducing recidivism?  Or are we simply passing the buck – shifting the costs, shifting the responsibility, shifting the victimization.

$20.00 Registration fee per person seeking CLE credits

After the CLE there will be a Reunion Networking Reception. Cost is $15 per person.
