UT Law professor, recent grad featured in Washington Post

A column published Wednesday in The Washington Post by longstanding contributor and Pulitzer Prize-winner George F. Will features law review articles by Beauchamp Brogan Distinguished Professor of Law Glenn Harlan Reynolds and alumnus Michael Anthony Cottone (’14), a federal judicial clerk.

Will’s column, “When Everything is a Crime,” discusses the “overcriminalization of American life,” as well as the American criminal justice system, which Will argues has “too many opportunities for generating defendants.”

Throughout the column, Will builds upon the ideas Reynolds presents in his 2013 Columbia Law Review piece, “Ham Sandwich Nation: Due Process When Everything is a Crime.” Will does the same when discussing  Cottone’s 2015 Tennessee Law Review piece, “Rethinking Presumed Knowledge of the Law in the Regulatory Age.”
