Biography

Professor Peter Henning joined the faculty in 1994 as an associate professor and was promoted to professor of law in 2002. He graduated magna cum laude in 1985 from Georgetown University Law Center, where he served as a notes and comments editor on the Georgetown Law Journal. After graduation, he taught in the College of Business Administration at Loyola Marymount University and then clerked for Chief Judge Murray M. Schwartz of the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware. After clerking, Professor Henning was until 1991 a senior attorney in the Division of Enforcement at the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission, where he worked on cases involving insider trading, penny stock fraud, market manipulation and accounting irregularities. He then moved to the Criminal Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, where he worked in the Fraud Section on the investigation and prosecution of bank fraud. During this time he also published articles in the Kansas Law Review, St. Louis University Law Journal and American Criminal Law Review.

Professor Henning teaches courses in Corporations, White Collar Crime, Professional Responsibility & the Legal Profession, Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure, Criminal Pretrial Advocacy and Securities Litigation. He taught previously at the high school and university undergraduate levels. In 2013, he was a Fulbright Scholar teaching at the University of Zagreb in Croatia. Professor Henning has received a number of teaching awards, including the President's Award for Excellence in Teaching, whose recipients are selected from among the entire Wayne State University faculty, and the Donald H. Gordon Award for Excellence in Teaching, which is presented by the alumni of the Law School.

Professor Henning's scholarship focuses primarily on white collar crime, constitutional criminal procedure and attorney ethics. Recent articles have been published in the University of Chicago Legal Forum, Ohio State Law Journal, American Criminal Law Review and Georgetown Journal of Legal Ethics. He is the co-author of three casebooks on white collar crime, criminal law and criminal pretrial advocacy, along with student texts on criminal law, criminal procedure and white collar crime. He is the author of The Prosecution and Defense of Public Corruption: The Law and Legal Strategies, published by LexisNexis, which is the leading treatise in the field. He recently joined as a co-author of Securities Crimes and is the author of three volumes of Federal Practice and Procedure: Criminal, originally written by the late Professor Charles Alan Wright. These treatises are frequently cited reference works.

Professor Henning is an elected member of the American Law Institute and chair of the Book Board for the Criminal Justice Section of the American Bar Association. He is a member of the Criminal Law and Procedure Drafting Committee for the National Conference of Bar Examiners that is responsible for drafting and reviewing questions for the multi-state bar exam. He writes a regular column, "White Collar Watch," for The New York Times DealBook and has been quoted in a number of media outlets.

Professor Henning and his wife, Karen, who is on the faculty at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law, have three daughters, Molly, Alexandra and Grace.

Criminal Law: Concepts and Practice
Criminal Law: Concepts and Practice (Carolina Press) 2013 co-authored with Ellen S. Podger, Andrew Taslitz, and Alfredo Garcia

This book is a leader in providing materials that match the “skills and values” theme emphasized in the MacCrate and Carnegie Reports. The new third edition includes over 50 problems that allow the law professor to explore the practical impact of the theoretical concepts underlying criminal law. The new edition expands this orientation with several new problems, a new case study that examines issues from Jena Six, as well as new materials that recognize recent federal sentencing guideline changes. The book retains its international and comparative notes with the addition of a problem that considers the increased influence of international matters. In keeping with the original theme of having a casebook with recent decisions, several new cases are inserted, with a few older ones removed. The authors plan to introduce with this casebook a website that will offer podcasts, syllabi, Powerpoints, and other teaching materials. In short, a text that is compact, student-friendly, flexible, both practical and theoretical, and hi-tech ­ all in one novel package, including a teachers' manual with answers to every problem.

Criminal Pretrial Advocacy

It contains materials to follow a case through all the important steps in a criminal prosecution from the decision to file charges to challenges to the investigative tactics and evidence to plea bargaining. The casebook covers the pretrial process in a criminal case by incorporating both a discussion of the rules and procedures in each phase along with the basic legal doctrines related to criminal prosecutions. This gives students the substantive foundation to proceed through the course by providing a foundation for understanding how the process unfolds. It is designed to give students the opportunity to engage in both legal writing exercises and court appearances.

View Table of Contents and Introductory Material Mastering Criminal Procedure, Volume 2 The Adjudicatory Stage (Carolina Academic Press) 2012

Mastering Criminal Procedure, Volume 2: The Adjudicatory Stage focuses on the process of a criminal case from the filing of charges against a defendant through the pre-trial and trial stages of the prosecution, and then post-conviction proceedings. This concise guide treats the leading Supreme Court decisions along with a range of statutes and rules that govern the process by which a criminal charge is adjudicated. A number of constitutional protections apply in a prosecution, including the right to a jury trial, confrontation of witnesses, the prohibition on excessive bail, and protection from double jeopardy. A number of procedural rules come into play, including discovery rights, jurisdiction and venue, and post-conviction proceedings, including habeas corpus.

Global Issues in Criminal Procedure
Global Issues in Criminal Procedure (West Academic Publishing) 2011 with Linda Carter and Christopher Blakesley

Global Issues in Criminal Procedure provides an overview of constitutional issues that arise when searches, seizures and interrogations occur outside the United States. As crimes increasingly cross international borders, investigations also cross national boundaries. The materials in this book examine prosecutions in U.S. courts that involve evidence obtained abroad. There are two main parts to the book: 1) Searches and Seizures Abroad and 2) Interrogations Abroad. The first part examines the reach of the Fourth Amendment when the searches and seizures involve U.S. citizens abroad compared with non-U.S. citizens. Cases such as Verdugo-Urquidez and Alvarez-Machain are included, along with more recent cases that stem from recent terrorism prosecutions. Since the September 11 attacks, electronic surveillance has also become more important in conducting investigations and raises new challenges. A section on electronic surveillance contains materials on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act with its amendments from the USA Patriot Act and more recent amendments. The second part of the book looks at the reach of the Fifth Amendment and Due Process Clause abroad, both the ban on involuntary statements and the protections of Miranda. This section further includes materials on torture and extraordinary renditions. There is also a short discussion of indefinite detention in places like Guantnamo Bay, Cuba, Afghanistan, and in other sites. The book is designed to be used in conjunction with a basic Criminal Procedure textbook that covers the traditional Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendment cases. The materials provide an opportunity to extend the study of these Amendments into the international implications and issues that face many criminal law practitioners and judges in cases today in U.S. courts.

Mastering Criminal Law
Mastering Criminal Law (Carolina Press) 2008 co-authored w/Ellen S. Podger & Neil P. Cohen

This book provides a clear and concise consideration of the fundamental structure of a crime, including statutory interpretation and sentencing. It has chapters on the typical crimes covered in most criminal law casebooks, namely homicide, rape, assault and battery, and theft. It extends the study to newer forms of crimes, such as criminal enterprises, and includes chapters on accomplice liability, solicitation, attempt and conspiracy. The book covers the traditional defenses seen in criminal law courses and also examines the concept of what is a defense. Cultural defenses and the right to present a defense are included. Many factual examples come from real-world cases. The learning tools used throughout the book provide an overview of the subject, reinforcement of basic principles, and a better understanding of criminal law principles.

Global Issues in Criminal Law
Global Issues in Criminal Law (West Group) 2007 co-authored w/Linda Carter and Christorpher L. Blakesley

This book provides an introduction to issues arising in international and transnational crimes, giving students a broader perspective on a developing area of the law. The book also provides faculty and students with material from domestic and international sources. It builds on a number of subjects treated in the traditional criminal law class, such as mens rea, actus reus, accomplice and conspiratorial liability, and defenses, by analyzing three subjects of current interest: transnational crimes, terrorism, and genocide.

White Collar Crime: Law and Practice
White Collar Crime: Law and Practice (West Group, 2d Edition (American Casebook Series)) July 2003 co-authored with Jerold H. Israel, Ellen S. Podgor, and Paul D. Borman

This book exposes students to how legal transactions involved in a single white collar crime case can require consideration of substantive criminal law, criminal procedure, administrative procedure, corporate law, evidence, civil procedure, sentencing law, and highly specialized regulatory law. It provides a unique combination of traditional materials (cases and statutes) and not-so-traditional materials (e.g., newspaper articles, forms, and practice manuals). Coverage includes traditional mail fraud, RICO (Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organizations), and computer fraud legislation.
