Hadar Dancig-Rosenberg and Tali Gal (Bar-Ilan University - Faculty of Law and School of Criminology, University of Haifa) have posted Criminal Law Multitasking (Lewis & Clark Law Review, Forthcoming) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
Criminal law pursues multiple goals: retribution, deterrence, expressive justice, rehabilitation, restoration, and reconciliation. Scholars tend to analyze these goals and their implementation in separation from each other, without accounting for their interplay and coordination. A theory of criminal law multitasking is overdue.
This Article sets up a conceptual framework for such a theory. We develop a taxonomy that captures the interplay between various procedures and substantive goals promoted by criminal law.
