crespoHarvard Faculty Speaker: Andrew Crespo

Andrew Crespo visits the RMHUC for a special faculty talk: "Investigation, Indictment, Impeachment? The Questions and Challenges Facing Special Counsel Robert Mueller" on Monday, November 20, 2017.

Harvard Law School Assistant Professor Andrew Crespo (AB '05, JD '08) is coming to Denver for a special lecture on issues surrounding the current work of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating members of the Trump administration, the Trump family, and the Trump campaign for possible collaboration with Russian agents during the 2016 election. He is also investigating potential efforts to obstruct that initial investigation—including possible obstruction of justice by the President himself. No criminal investigation in the past forty years—perhaps no criminal investigation in American history—has been so fraught with complex legal and political issues.  Prof. Crespo has written and spoken extensively about these issues in the national press.

Prof. Crespo teaches criminal law and criminal procedure, and his research focuses on the institutional design and administration of the criminal justice system, with a particular focus on the administrative role courts play in regulating law enforcement behavior.  As a law student, he served as president of the Harvard Law Review, the first Latino to hold that position.  Prior to joining the HLS faculty, he clerked for Associate Supreme Court Justices Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan and served as a public defender in Washington, D.C.
