Rounding up some new commentary prompted by a new Justice Jackson

Though a few of these pieces were published before the official confirmation vote, all of these new commentaries rounded up here lean into criminal justice issues and are inspired by Judge Jackson becoming Justice Jackson: 

By Brakkton Booker, "What Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson means for the country"

By Garrett Epps, "Ketanji Brown Jackson Was a Public Defender. Here’s Why That’s a Great Thing."

By Shanteal Lake, "Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson will bring new perspectives on mass incarceration to U.S. Supreme Court jurisprudence"

By Marc Levin, "It's Confirmed: The Constitution Isn't Tough or Soft on Crime"

By Andrey Spektor, "Ketanji Brown Jackson is confirmed. Our criminal justice system awaits the verdict"
