From an Ohio State Law press release: "With criminal law issues occupying nearly half of the Supreme Court's docket, and with the modern criminal justice system being subject to new scrutiny, a critical question is whether the Roberts Court might radically reshape existing criminal justice jurisprudence. The just-published Fall 2005 issue of the Ohio State Journal of Criminal Law (OSJCL) provides a timely and thoughtful perspective on these issues in its symposium entitled “The Warren Court Criminal Justice Revolution: Reflections a Generation Later.”...Through a series of legendary decisions such as Gideon v. Wainwright and Miranda v. Arizona , the Warren Court shifted the law of criminal procedure in ways that have been described as a revolution.
The Fall 2005 issue of the Ohio State Journal of Criminal Law contains a retrospective on the Warren Court 's criminal justice legacy. In six articles by eminent criminal justice scholars, the authors examine the way the Warren Court changed, and didn't change, the law of criminal justice; how some of those changes have been rolled back by later Courts; and whether different and better paths were available for greater federal control of state criminal justice systems.
The articles in the OSJCL Fall 2005 issue provide important new perspectives on how a Justice Alito and the rest of the Roberts Court might re-examine the Supreme Court's always evolving criminal justice jurisprudence. To subscribe to the journal, see http://moritzlaw.osu.edu/osjcl/Subscribe.htm."
