Pardon Power

The American Constitution Society has on its website an issue brief written by Margaret Colgate Love, entitled, "Reinventing the President's Pardon Power."  A description of the piece states:

"[n]oting that public confidence in pardons has been justifiably diminished, Love urges that '[O]ur next president ought to identify the values pardon serves, define a clear role for it in the criminal justice system, and establish a system for administering the power that will maximize its potential for correcting injustice and encouraging reform.'”
