The Law & Economics of Criminal Justice Reform
The tools of law and economics can help identify strengths and weaknesses in America’s system of criminal justice and can be used to evaluate reform proposals. The Symposium on the Law and Economics of Criminal Justice Reform gathered the country’s leading authorities on crime, policing, and punishment to discuss and debate how well the criminal justice system is working and where it can be improved. Panelists addressed such topics as the new technologies of policing, racial discrimination in the criminal justice system, pre-trial detention and bail reform, over-criminalization, asset forfeiture, and many others.
