Book Panel on Professor Brandon Garrett's "End of Its Rope"
Leading litigators and scholars discussed professor Brandon L. Garrett's new book, "End Of Its Rope: How Killing the Death Penalty Can Revive Criminal Justice." The book analyzes data on over two decades of death sentences to both explore causes of the decline in American death sentencing and its implications for the future of criminal justice reform. The panelists were death penalty lawyer David Bruck of Washington & Lee Law School; Robin Konrad of the Death Penalty Information Center; Evan Mandery of John Jay College and author of "A Wild Justice"; and Carol Steiker of Harvard Law School and the Criminal Justice Policy Program, and co-author of "Courting Justice." UVA Law professor Steve Braga served as moderator.
