Abstract
Professor Richard E. Shugrue ("RES") of Creighton University School of Law, and Professor John R. Snowden ("JRS") of the University of Nebraska College of Law, met at Creighton University on a Friday in mid-September, 1998, where the following dialogue occurred. This dialogue took place less than a month after the Nebraska Supreme Court's decision in State v. Burlison,' which overruled the line of cases requiring the presence of malice in second degree murder prosecutions. The purpose of this dialogue was to examine the homicide doctrine as it had evolved over the years and to explore some unanswered questions which will inevitably face the Nebraska Supreme Court in the future. What follows is an edited version of that dialogue, to which essential references have been added.
