Court Reform on Trial: Why Simple Solutions Fail
Price: $8.99 USD. Words: 81,830. Language: English. Published: July 23, 2013 by Quid Pro, LLC. Categories: Nonfiction » Law » Courts & trial practice, Nonfiction » Social Science » Criminology
A recognized study of innovation in the process of criminal justice, and why it so often fails—despite the best intentions of judges, administrators & reformers. The arc of reform to disappointment is analyzed for such ideas as bail, pretrial diversion, speedy trial and determinate sentences. A much-maligned system of pleas shifts power to prosecutors away from judges. New foreword by Greg Berman.
