Bystanders and Upstanders Amid Sexual Crimes



Against the backdrop of widespread revelations about sexual abuse by Harvey Weinstein, Larry Nassar, and many others, Senior Fellow Zachary Kaufman studies the role of bystanders in the context of sexual crimes in the United States. In his new article “Protectors of Predators or Prey: Bystanders and Upstanders amid Sexual Crimes,” forthcoming in the Southern California Law Review, the flagship journal of the University of Southern California’s USC Gould School of Law, Zachary prescribes a new approach to a legal duty to report on sexual abuse. The article is available on SSRN.
