Law Review Authors' Series Part II

The Law Review Authors’ Series is designed to further distinguish our student authors in the pursuit of excellence in legal scholarship by giving them a forum to present and defend their recently published articles. We expect the audience to consist of judges, practitioners, professors, and students. Audience members ask the author questions and make counterarguments to prove the worth of the author’s ideas.

Part II of the Law Review Authors' Series will be Thursday, October 28, at 6 p.m. in Sullivan Hall, room C1. This month's author is Gordon B. Hill, an associate editor. He will present his article, “The Use of Pre-Existing Exclusionary Zones as Probationary Conditions for Prostitution Offenses: A Call for the Sincere Application of Heightened Scrutiny.” In this article, Gordon Hill argues that because the justification for the traditional discretion exercised by courts in fashioning probationary conditions for misdemeanor offenses has disappeared in the context of Stay Out of Areas of Prostitution (SOAP) orders, trial courts asked to impose such orders should do so infrequently and only after careful consideration. Appellate courts faced with SOAP orders should conduct a rigorous review of such orders’ appropriateness in the specific case before the court. Gordon is an extremely entertaining and engaging speaker, as you will see.

The presentation should be of interest to both the prosecutors' and criminal defense bar, and members of the state and federal bench will be invited to attend and participate. Those practitioners in attendance at this free presentation will receive one CLE credit.

Looking ahead to our third and final event in the Fall Series, on November 18, James A. Pautler, a research and technical editor, will present his article, “You Know More Than You Think: State v. Townsend, Imputed Knowledge, and Implied Consent Under the Washington Privacy Act.” James will debate the merits of his article with Ms. Susan Storey, a senior deputy prosecuting attorney with the Fraud Division of the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. James’s article can be found at 28 Seattle U. L. Rev. 209.
