Reginald Dwayne Betts, "What Break Do Children Deserve? Juveniles, Crime, and Justice Kennedy’s Influence on the Supreme Court’s Eighth Amendment Jurisprudence"

Tarra Simmons, "Transcending the Stigma of a Criminal Record: A Proposal to Reform State Bar Character and Fitness Evaluations"

Andrea James, "Ending the Incarceration of Women and Girls"

Shon Hopwood, "The Effort to Reform the Federal Criminal Justice System"
