The Stanford Law & Policy Review will host a symposium on the topic of “Prison Reform” during the 2010-11 academic year. Submissions are invited through August 15, 2010 — details here, as well as a long list of suggested topics. Here’s some information from SLPR about their vision for the symposium:
Through this symposium, we plan to explore the many ways that prison management has come under increased pressure during this time of economic hardship and increased judicial activism. While mass incarceration and prison release have been frequently addressed in the news lately, we would like to explore more deeply how decreasing budgets and judicial activism have affected the management of prisoners inside the system, especially in terms of both reform pressures as well as opportunities for experimentation.
Note: Though I’m a student at Stanford, I’m not in any way involved with this publication. I’m just passing along this announcement to my readers at their request, but if you have any further questions you should contact SLPR directly.
