The Stanford Journal of Criminal Law and Policy hosted its inaugural symposium, titled "Prosecutorial Discretion: Ethics, Practice and Study," on May 16, 2014. Panels included discussions surrounding the three articles published in our first issue, as well as a lunchtime Intelligence Squared-style debate on the prompt: "Good People Should Not Be Prosecutors" (for more information on this debate format, visit http://intelligencesquaredus.org/about).
