Membership Crime Vs. The Right To Assemble, 48 J. Marshall L. Rev. 729 (2015), Steven Morrison

The John Marshall Law Review

The World War I (WWI) era generated the substantive First Amendment. Subsequent jurisprudence, however, has focused on the speech right and left the right to assemble underdeveloped. This is so because courts, lawyers, and scholars view the WWI cases as speech cases.

Only the innocent deserve the benefits of the principle of legality. This assertion naturally offends our notions of justice. It would be unacceptable for a legal system to institutionalize such an approach. Yet, in the context of prosecuting mass atrocities, genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes, international criminal justice mechanisms appear to be resigned to such a principle, if not openly embracing it.
