Monday, March 18, 2013
5:00 PM – 7:00 PM
The Cherry Room, New England Law | Boston
On Monday, March 18, 2013, The New England Law Review hosted a discussion of Professor Stuart P. Green’s book, 13 Ways to Steal a Bicycle: Theft Law in the Information Age. In 13 Ways to Steal a Bicycle, Professor Green assessed our current legal framework in the context of an economy that increasingly commodifies intangibles and at a time when the means ofm committing theft and fraud grow ever more sophisticated.
Professor Green advocated for a reform of the current structure to keep pace with modern times, community attitudes toward theft, and advancements in criminal law theory. Professor Green was joined by several esteemed speakers to discuss the changes addressed in the book, the dire need for reform, and the broad areas of law such reform touches.
- Professor Stuart Green, Rutgers School of Law | Newark
- Professor Kenneth W. Simons, Boston University School of Law
- Professor Alex Steel, University of New South Wales Law
- Hon. Gary S. Katzmann, Associate Justice, Massachusetts Appeals Court
The event was moderated by:
- Professor Peter J. Karol, New England Law | Boston
