But will curbing frat life put a stop to sexual assault? Jed Rubenfeld, professor of criminal law at Yale Law School, co-author of The Triple Package: How Three Unlikely Traits Explain the Rise and Fall of Cultural Groups in America (Penguin Press HC, 2014), and Sabrina Rubin Erdely, Rolling Stone contributing editor, talk about the legal and cultural problems with how colleges currently handle sexual assault on campus.
