MIRANDA AT 40: APPLICATIONS IN A POST-ENRON, POST-9/11 WORLD
Chapman University School of Law
Friday, January 26, 2007
The Honorable Edwin Meese III, Heritage Foundation Chairman of the Center for Legal and Judicial Studies and former U.S. Attorney General under President Ronald Reagan.
In 2000, the Supreme Court "re-affirmed" the validity of Miranda v. Arizona in Dickerson v. United States, which held that Congress lacked the authority to overrule Miranda through legislation because Miranda announced a constitutional rule. Since then, new issues have emerged on the Miranda landscape. While the Miranda decision has been with us for 40 years, there are constantly evolving situations in which its relevance and power continue to be tested. This Symposium explores questions such as:
- whether Miranda applies to terrorism interrogations conducted abroad (as a district court held that it did in United States v. Bin Laden) and whether Miranda applies to so-called enemy combatants
- whether the depictions of Miranda on television and other media are accurate and to what extent do they influence, or are influenced by, real-life criminal procedure
- whether Miranda effectively shields the innocent in modern practice
- whether Sarbanes-Oxley, enacted in the wake of tremendous corporate scandals, has imposed obligations on corporate insiders to cooperate with government investigators in a way that intrudes on the right against self-incrimination.
