Another accounting of Justice Ginsburg's criminal justice legacy

I receive via email from Arizona State College of Law's Academy for Justice a terrific review (with links) of some of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg major work in criminal justice cases during her tenure on the Court, as well as some leading scholarship discussing this work. I got permission to reprint this collection here, so:

Some of Justice Ginsburg's Criminal Justice Opinions:

Some Scholarship Addressing Justice Ginsburg's Contributions

UPDATE: The Marshall Project has this extended new piece with lots of quote from criminal justice advocates and scholars under this full headline "RBG’s Mixed Record on Race and Criminal Justice: Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a revered feminist icon. Her legacy on issues such as prisoners’ rights, capital punishment, racial justice and tribal sovereignty has been less examined."

I am a native retired Spanish teacher/professor

I am writing a feature story of my smart, well educated and traveled son. He suffers from schizophrenia.

I am interested in reading about the USA Justice System. This system is focusing in punishment rather than rehabilitation the opposite of what many European countries are doing.

Peace and concern
