Kansas Criminal Law Codification Project

The Kansas legislature has appointed a commission to revise the state’s criminal code.

Prof. Robinson and the CLRG are helping in the work. Drawing heavily on the innovations developed during other recent penal code drafting projects (e.g. Illinois, Kentucky, Maldives), the CLRG proposal for a new Kansas criminal code will seek to create a modern comprehensive code incorporating the latest in drafting forms, code structure, and criminal law doctrine.
