Margaret Colgate Love has posted Forgiving, Forgetting, and Forgoing: Legislative Experiments in Restoring Rights and Status (Editor's Observations) (30 Federal Sentencing Reporter 231 (2018)) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
The articles and primary materials in this Issue of the Federal Sentencing Reporter emerged from a Roundtable conference sponsored by the American Law Institute (ALI) and the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) in January 2018, provide a range of perspectives and experiences that will be useful in developing that strategy going forward. While their immediate focus is the legislative process, they also illuminate how collateral consequences affect civil and criminal practitioners, judges, and scholars. The Roundtable did not produce a specific set of recommendations, but a consensus emerged from its discussion around certain basic principles that should prove useful to all those concerned with legislative and judicial management of the problem of collateral consequences.
