MATTHEW TERMINE: I would like to welcome everyone to the first-
ever event hosted by Res Gestae, Fordham Law Review's Online
Companion.
My name is Matt Termine, and I'm Volume 79's Online Editor.
I'm honored to introduce Professors Holly Maguigan and Joshua
Dressler.
Professor Maguigan is Professor of Clinical Law at New York University
Law School. She teaches a criminal defense clinic and one in comparative
criminal justice, as well as a seminar in global public service lawyering and
a course in evidence. She is an expert on the criminal trials of battered
women.
Professor Joshua Dressler is Bacon-Kilkenny Distinguished Visiting
Professor of Law at Fordham University Law School. He holds the Frank
R. Strong Chair in Law at The Ohio State University's Michael E. Moritz
College of Law. Professor Dressler is one of the country's most respected
authorities on the subjects of criminal law and criminal procedure.
Today's discussion will provide an opportunity for two experts in this
field to discuss doctrinal treatment of battered women defense cases. The
discussion will focus on whether and when we should justify or excuse
battering victims when they go beyond what is accounted for in Model
Penal Code and common law self-defense doctrine.
