This panel discussion will examine why the federal government seeks the death penalty in some hate crimes cases and not others and how the legal, moral, political, and mental health dimensions of this complex issue factor into the decision-making process.  Panelists include LLS faculty members, a federal public defender, a retired federal judge, and a clinical psychologist.  Light refreshments will be served.
