Cleveland-Marshall College of Law welcomes NYU Law School Professor Rachel Barkow to speak at a free Criminal Justice Forum CLE event. Professor Barkow will speak on the topic of her new book, titled “Prisoners of Politics: Breaking the Cycle of Mass Incarceration.”  She will discuss the political dynamics that produce policy outcomes that fail to make us safer but foster mass incarceration.  She will propose specific institutional reforms that would allow data and evidence to guide our choices while respecting important constitutional limits.

Professor Barkow is the Vice Dean and Segal Family Professor of Regulatory Law and Policy at the New York University School of Law.  She also serves as Faculty Director of NYU’s Center on the Administration of Criminal Law.  From 2013-2018, she served as a member of the United States Sentencing Commission.  A graduate of Harvard Law School, Professor Barkow served as a law clerk to Judge Laurence H. Silberman of the DC Circuit and Justice Antonin Scalia of the US Supreme Court.
