Prison Release Discretion and Prison Population Size

November 10, 2021, 1:00 to 2:30 pm, online

With a focus on the length of prison sentences and their contribution to America's high rate of incarceration, the Robina Institute's Prison Release: Degrees of Indeterminacy Project shines a light on the oft-ignored role that back-end decision-makers - like parole boards and prison officials – play in determining actual time served. Cross-state differences in legal frameworks for prison release decisions reflect differing capacities to reduce and increase prison populations.

1.5 standard CLE credits have been requested. Event code #421025.
