Catching up on lots more new sentencing and punishment scholarship

In this post two weeks ago I spotlighted more than a dozen new pieces of sentencing and punishment scholarship that had been posted to SSRN and that I did not find time to highlight in separate posts while consumed with COVID criminal justice issues. A few weeks later, I am still consumed with other matters and there are still more new pieces worth noting. So, I will again seek to catch up for lost time with another lengthy post linking to a lot of new scholarship from SSRN (listed here in alphabetical order by title):
