    Plea bargaining is the preeminent process used to mete out punishment for white-collar and other types of crimes. However, the plea bargaining process for each type of crime often yields unfair results that shake the pillars of democracy. Thus, reform is needed. What actions might law professors take? This provocative program brings together practitioners, empirical researchers, and law professors to discuss both the distinct and overlapping justice issues in white-collar and other criminal plea negotiations. Pedagogically, how might professors bring the lessons learned back to their classes on ADR, professional responsibility, constitutional law, criminal law, and clinics?
