Criminal Justice Forum: Should Plea Bargaining be More Transparent?  

The presentation will review the main reasons for and against secrecy in plea bargaining. While there are valid reasons for maintaining confidentiality in some aspects of plea negotiations, better documentation and greater transparency can enhance the fairness and public legitimacy of the process. Highlighting technological developments that make documentation more feasible, the presentation will suggest some concrete ways in which states and the federal system can increase transparency in plea bargaining while addressing legitimate reasons for confidentiality. Speaker: Jenia Turner is the Amy Abboud Ware Centennial Professor in Criminal Law at SMU Dedman School of Law in Dallas, Texas, where she teaches U.S. and comparative criminal procedure, international criminal law, and international law. This program includes 1.0 hours CLE credit and is free to the public.
