The Use and Impact of Solitary Confinement [NACDL Engage & Exchange x Decarceration Committee]

Presented by Judith Resnik, Yale Law School, New Haven, CT; and JoEllyn Jones, Jones & Ortiz P.A., Glassboro, NJ



Professor Judith Resnik, Arthur Liman Professor of Law and Founding Chair of the Arthur Liman Center for Public Interest Law at Yale University, will discuss the seismic impact of her recent research on solitary confinement - the Yale Liman Center and The Correctional Leaders Association’s ongoing study on solitary confinement in US prisons. The current state of constitutional law regarding solitary confinement exposes two main areas in need of immediate academic intervention: definitional challenges and an absence of data reporting. JoEllyn Jones, defense lawyer and member of NACDL’s Decarceration Committee, will facilitate Prof. Resnik’s discussion of her research and issues in addressing solitary confinement.
