  • 8 legal experts on what due process is in law, culture, and the context of #MeToo

    Vox - 02/12/2018

    Michael Meltsner, law professor, Northeastern University, and author of With Passion, An Activist Lawyer’s Life:

    It might help to remember that due process as a set of legal principles is different from due process as a range of cultural signals and beliefs. The law of due process is rich and varied but it generally evokes the right of an individual to be heard before the imposition of punishment or penalties by the government. For a rough guide to legal due process think about safeguards of the sort found in the Bill of Rights: confrontation of accusers, a burden of proof, an impartial decision maker and so forth.
