Collins, Leib, & Markel: “(When) Should Family Status Matter in the Criminal Justice System?”

Jennifer M. Collins (Wake Forest University-School of Law), Ethan J. Leib (University of California-Hastings College of the Law), & Dan Markel (Florida State University College of Law) have posted (When) Should Family Status Matter in the Criminal Justice System?, 13 New Criminal Law Review 151-175 (2010) on SSRN.  Here is the abstract:

Last year, we published a book entitled Privilege or Punish: Criminal Justice and the Challenge of Family Ties (Oxford 2009). Recently, the New Criminal Law Review published a series of provocative and challenging reviews of this book by Professors Doug Berman, Naomi Cahn, and Jack Chin. Needless to say, we appreciate their very kind words about our project and its contributions.

In this Essay, however, our focus will be on responding to the interesting criticisms lodged against our book; we hope to do so in a way that is helpful in advancing the conversation about the intersection between criminal justice and family status beyond these pages.

P.S. The full symposium can be downloaded at this link on ssrn: http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1561777.
