Bernadette Atuahene A THEORY OF STATEGRAFT 98 New York University Law Review 1 (April, 2023) Neoliberalism and its accompanying austerity measures are shrinking local and national government budgets, even though constituent needs remain pressing.

Fareed Nassor Hayat ABOLISH GANG STATUTES WITH THE POWER OF THE THIRTEENTH AMENDMENT: REPARATIONS FOR THE PEOPLE 70 UCLA Law Review 1120 (November, 2023) The abolitionist movement seeks to fundamentally dismantle the prison industrial complex.

Jeffrey Fagan , Lila J.E. Nojima ARE POLICE OFFICERS BAYESIANS? POLICE UPDATING IN INVESTIGATIVE STOPS 113 Journal of Criminal Law and Criminology 593 (Summer, 2023) Theories of rational behavior assume that actors make decisions where the benefits of their acts exceed their costs or losses. If those expected costs and benefits change over time, the behavior will change accordingly as actors learn and internalize the parameters of success and failure. In the context of proactive policing, police stops that... 2023
