Professor Witmer-Rich’s Article Published in Symposium Issue of Texas Tech Law Review

An article by Professor Jonathan Witmer-Rich has been published in a special symposium issue of the Texas Tech Law Review.  The 2016 Criminal Law Symposium on Violence Against Women included contributions from leading scholars around the country on topics such as affirmative consent, anticipatory self-defense, the prosecutor’s duty to rape victims, and campus sexual assault.  Professor Witmer-Rich‘s article is titled “Unpacking Affirmative Consent: Not as Great as You Hope, Not as Bad as You Fear.”  The article seeks to dispel common misconceptions and unfounded assumptions surrounding the concept of affirmative consent, arguing that affirmative consent standards do not represent a meaningful change from existing law.
