The Future of Juvenile Life Without Parole (JLWOP)

Wednesday, February 27, 2013
04:00 PM - 05:50 PM
American University Washington College of Law
4801 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC

In Miller v. Alabama, the Supreme Court held that the Eighth Amendment prohibits mandatory sentencing schemes that require life without parole for juvenile homicide offenders. Panelists will explore questions such as whether the Court will strike down JLWOP completely, racial and class disparities in juvenile sentencing, and larger sentencing trends.

Presented by the Program on Law and Government and the Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project
