Professor Barkow’s lecture is titled, “Criminal Law as Regulation.” Criminal law has traditionally been viewed in isolation from the rest of the administrative state. However, criminal law is administered by a huge and powerful regulatory apparatus and its effects are as sweeping as those of any regulatory program. Criminal laws have an enormous effect on the economy, on the lives of millions of individuals, and on the practices of powerful corporate actors. This lecture explores criminal law through the lens of administrative law and uses that framework to offer a series of possible reforms.
