Timely conference (and blog) on the "California Correctional Crisis"

BearLogo I am pleased to spotlight a terrific conference sponsored by UC Hastings College of the Law next week. As detailed here, the conference is titled “The California Correctional Crisis,” and it will bring together an amazing group of public officials, practitioners, activists, and academics to talk about the full ranges of issues and challenges facing California in the arena of crime and punishment.

The full schedule for this conference is available at this link and the full list of participants is available here.
