Sentencing Law and Policy

Court House

The Robina Institute’s work in Sentencing Law and Policy seeks to effect large scale and systemic improvements by providing direct assistance to jurisdictions exploring ways to advance their sentencing systems and by producing, encouraging, collecting, and disseminating policy-relevant research about the operations and effects of sentencing systems. This research looks at the impacts of sentencing systems on public safety, sentencing proportionality, racial and ethnic disparities, and imprisonment rates.
