Hayek Auditorium, Cato Institute
Featuring the author James Duane, Professor, Regent University Law School; with comments by Randy Barnett, Director, Georgetown Center for the Constitution, Georgetown University Law School; moderated by Tim Lynch, Director, Project on Criminal Justice, Cato Institute.

Law professor James Duane became a viral sensation in 2008 for a lively lecture that explained why people shouldn’t agree to answer questions from the police. In his new book, You Have the Right to Remain Innocent, Duane expands on that presentation, offering a vigorous defense of every citizen’s constitutionally protected right to avoid self‐​incrimination. By using case histories of innocent persons who were wrongfully imprisoned because of information they gave to police, Duane debunks the claim that “if you haven’t done anything wrong, then you don’t have anything to worry about.” Join us for an informative lecture about the Constitution and how to protect yourself and stay out of trouble with the police.
