Sexual Assault Regulation: On Campus and Beyond
Professor Kevin Cole
The rules pertaining to sexual assault have been a recent subject of controversy, both on college campuses and in the criminal law. This presentation shines a critical light on several developments, including “affirmative consent” requirements and regulation of sex while intoxicated. It also examines the American Law Institute’s recent proposals for criminal law reform in the area, identifying the tension between some of the proposals and generally accepted criminal law principles.
Instructor: Kevin Cole has been a law professor at the University of San Diego School of Law since 1987 and served as the school’s dean from 2005 through 2011. Among his recent publications are two articles addressing sexual-assault regulation, Better Sex Through Criminal Law and Sex and the Single Malt Girl: How Intoxication Affects Consent.
