Beyond the Sentence: Collateral Consequences of Conviction
The Wisconsin Law Review is pleased to announce its 2014 annual Symposium: “Beyond the Sentence: Collateral Consequences of Conviction.” The event will be held at the University of Wisconsin Law School in Room 2260.
Registration is now open!
Exploring the Broad Impacts of Collateral Consequences on Individuals, Families, and Society
The 2014 Symposium will draw together scholars, students, and practitioners to explore an area of the law that impacts individuals, families, the economy, and society. Common collateral consequences include barriers to employment, loss of voting rights, and ineligibility for public housing. These collateral sanctions frequently complicate the transition from incarceration to community reintegration, making it difficult for convicted individuals to secure employment and establish stability for themselves and their families. Breaking the cycle of recidivism will require states to balance legitimate public safety concerns with ensuring successful reentry for those who have served their time. Several panelists will discuss different facets of collateral consequences, providing legal, sociological, and economic perspectives, discussing several major issues posed by collateral consequences and exploring possible solutions.
