This symposium will examine the law, policies, and procedures that contribute to mass incarceration. Among the issues to be covered are the increase in the use of the criminal justice system to address social problems, conditions of confinement, and how barriers facing the incarcerated upon reentry increase the likelihood of re-incarceration. Finally, the symposium will examine approaches for reforming the system from judicial, legislative and direct advocacy perspectives.
