If you have a question about this talk, please contact Xinyi Liu.

The criminal law, like many other branches of law, both guides and evaluates behaviour. Can it plausibly be seen as performing each of these functions independently of the other? Would analysing the law as doing so further our understanding of how the criminal law ought to work in an ideal world? This presentation very briefly touches upon the interesting distinction made between conduct rules and decision rules, and describes the most important outcome generated by it.
