Oregon has a long history with capital punishment. Under the territorial government the first execution took place in 1851, and in 1864 it was adopted by statute. Since then Oregonians twice repealed the death penalty by ballot and it has been struck down by the Oregon Supreme Court; three times it was restored by Oregon voters. Join members of the Legal Heritage Interest Group for a two-hour seminar exploring the issues and challenges that make capital punishment such a complex and polarizing topic.
Cosponsored by the Legal Heritage Interest Group.
