A 3-week virtual reading group covering Chris Surprenant's and Jason Brennan's book "Injustice for All: How Financial Incentives Corrupted and Can Fix the US Criminal Justice System", with special focus on the jury-related aspects of the book.
This work is a broad survey that covers a wide range of topics in the American criminal legal system. The authors examine the financial incentives that drive the American criminal legal system to outcomes that are all too often unjust and offer several proposals for changing those incentives to achieve more just outcomes. In the course of our discussion of the entire book, we will pay special attention to jury issues and other related issues that affect trials by jury.
Chris Surprenant is Professor of Philosophy at the University of New Orleans and is the founding director of the Urban Entrepreneurship and Policy Institute. Jason Brennan is the Robert J. and Elizabeth Flanagan Family Professor of Strategy, Economics, Ethics, and Public Policy at Georgetown University.
