Interesting coverage of mental illness and sentencing in Harvard Law Review

I had the honor of writing for "Developments in the Law" and then serving as Developments Chair during my years on the Harvard Law Review.  Consequently, I am especially proud to see that this year's Developments in the Law is focused on "The Law of Mental Illness".  And, as the introduction highlights, "[b]ecause the criminal justice system has become home to many mentally ill individuals, several of the Parts the focus on this area."  Indeed, as this summary table of contents highlights, there is a lot of good reading in this Devo for sentencing fans:


I. Introduction

II. Sell v. United States: Forcibly Medicating the Mentally Ill To Stand Trial

III. Booker, the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, and Violent Mentally Ill Offenders

IV. The Impact of the Prison Litigation Reform Act on Correctional Mental Health Litigation

V. The Supreme Court's Pursuit of Procedural Maxima over Substantive Minima in Mental Capacity Determinations

VI. Mental Health Courts and the Trend Toward a Rehabilitative Justice System

VII. Voting Rights and the Mentally Incapacitated
