The United States is one of only two developed nations in the world that execute prisoners. Yet there is an undeniable movement abroad in the country toward its abolition of capital punishment. President Biden has promised that there will be no federal executions on his watch, and the Commonwealth of Virginia has become the first former Confederate State to ban judicial killings.

How does the death penalty actually work in this country? How is it determined who is sentenced to die and who is not? What restrictions have the courts imposed on its use, and why? Is there a legitimate argument that the death penalty as currently applied is unconstitutional? Join this presentation with Professor Steven M. Schneebaum to explore the answers to these questions.
