Justin Murray on Prejudice-Based Rights

Season 1, Ep. 467

In this episode, Justin Murray, Associate Professor of Law at New York Law School, discusses his article "Prejudice-Based Rights in Criminal Procedure," which will be published in the University of Pennsylvania Law Review. Murray begins by explaining what "prejudiced-based" rights are, and how their administration by trial courts and prosecutors differs from rights that don't require a showing of prejudice. He observes that the prejudice requirement often renders those rights ineffectual. And he argues that courts and prosecutors should not consider prejudice at the trial stage.
