Mental exercise can be fun. Using the Socratic method, we will critically discuss and analyze policy choices inherent in deciding whether to hold someone criminally responsible for homicide in a variety of complex situations. Beware: This is not a who-done-it primer. Each scenario will be clearly defined. The question will be: “Given the facts, is this murder?” Come ready to join the discussion!
