Fredrick E. Vars THE SLAYER RULE: AN EMPIRICAL EXAMINATION 48 ACTEC Law Journal 201 (Spring, 2023) Elmer Palmer murdered his grandfather. The undisputed motive was money.

Kimberly Kessler Ferzan THE TROUBLE WITH TIME SERVED 48 Brigham Young University Law Review 2001 (2023) Every jurisdiction in the United States gives criminal defendants credit against their sentence for the time they spend detained pretrial. In a world of mass incarceration and overcriminalization that disproportionately impacts people of color, this practice appears to be a welcome mechanism for mercy and justice. In fact, however, crediting... 2023

Phyllis C. Taite WELFARE v. WEALTHFARE: THE ILLUSION OF EQUALITY IN TAX POLICY 20 Pittsburgh Tax Review 363 (Spring, 2023) Tax laws and policies may be perceived as race-neutral because race data is not used to determine tax liability. Similarly, the rate structure may be perceived as progressive because tax rates increase as income increases. Nonetheless, history has demonstrated that tax laws and policies are biased against race and class and the tax system is not... 2023  
Eric Martínez , Kevin Tobia WHAT DO LAW PROFESSORS BELIEVE ABOUT LAW AND THE LEGAL ACADEMY? 112 Georgetown Law Journal 111 (October, 2023) Legal scholarship is replete with debates about competing legal theories: textualism or purposivism; formalism or realism; natural law or positivism; prison reform or abolition; universal or culturally specific human rights? Despite voluminous literature about these debates, great uncertainty remains about which views experts endorse. This Article... 2023  
Tori DeLaney WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOU: HOW THE UNITED STATES USES RACIAL-GENDERED IMMIGRANT LABOR TO INFORM ITS IMMIGRANT INCLUSION-EXCLUSION CYCLE 92 University of Cincinnati Law Review 206 (10/20/2023) The United States has constructed and continues to enforce gender, race, and labor assumptions through the Immigration and Nationality Act's (INA) deportation rules. The United States crafted its immigration laws to be flexible enough to lean on and vilify immigrant labor depending on the nation's labor needs. Modern enforcement of the INA's... 2023

Alison Peebles WHEN PERMANENCY IS PERMANENT SEPARATION: IN THE FAMILY REGULATION SYSTEM, A TEMPORARY REMOVAL FAST TRACKS TERMINATING PARENTS' RIGHTS 31 Journal of Law & Policy 197 (2023) The Adoption and Safe Families Act (ASFA) is a federal law that creates a mandate for states to move to terminate parents' rights if a child has been in foster care for fifteen out of the twenty-two most recent months.

King, P.A., West Palm Beach, Florida, 561-833-1084, Email, Website WHEN YOU PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH AND WHAT YOU PREACH IS RACISM 47-JUN Champion 5 (June, 2023) Seldom do the policies of prosecutors' offices come to light. As defense lawyers in state courts, we hear over counsel table what plea offer is being extended, but seldom is the reasoning behind the plea offer explained.

Postmortem photographs are often probative but might prejudicially heighten jurors' other-condemning emotions, such as anger and disgust. Premortem photographs are often not probative and might prejudicially heighten... 2023  
Vida B. Johnson WHITE SUPREMACY FROM THE BENCH 27 Lewis & Clark Law Review 39 (2023) Judges make important decisions in millions of cases a year across the country. Unlike other institutional players and unlike parties and their attorneys, judges are the only players in our adversarial legal system that are by design ostensibly neutral, impartial, and without bias. Unfortunately, that legal fiction is not fact. Some judges do hold... 2023  
Daniel S. Harawa WHITEWASHING THE FOURTH AMENDMENT 111 Georgetown Law Journal 923 (May, 2023) A conventional critical race critique of the Supreme Court and its Fourth Amendment jurisprudence is that it erases race. Scholars argue that by erasing race, the Court has crafted doctrine that is oblivious to people of color's lived experiences with policing in America. This Article complicates this critique by asking whether it is solely the... 2023  
LaToya Baldwin Clark WHOSE CHILD IS THIS? EDUCATION, PROPERTY, AND BELONGING 123 Columbia Law Review 1201 (June, 2023) Previous work suggests that excludability is the main attribute of educational property and residence is the lynchpin of that exclusion. Once a child is non-excludable, the story goes, he should have complete access to the benefits of educational property. This Essay suggests a challenge to the idea that exclusion is the main attribute of... 2023

Lydia Davenport WOULD JUSTICE SCALIA THINK BLACK GUNS MATTER? 47 New York University Review of Law and Social Change 1 (2023) Do Black Guns Matter? This Article considers what Justice Scalia's opinion in District of Columbia v. Heller tells us about how the law treats Black gun owners' rights. The opinion appears to tell two stories. One elevates white gun holders through three white paradigms: the colonial revolutionary, the frontiersman, and the hunter. The second... 2023

Darren Lenard Hutchinson "WITH ALL THE MAJESTY OF THE LAW": SYSTEMIC RACISM, PUNITIVE SENTIMENT, AND EQUAL PROTECTION 110 California Law Review 371 (April, 2022) United States criminal justice policies have played a central role in the subjugation of persons of color. Under slavery, criminal law explicitly provided a means to ensure White dominion over Blacks and require Black submission to White authority.

Anita Sinha A LINEAGE OF FAMILY SEPARATION 87 Brooklyn Law Review 445 (Winter, 2022) History, as nearly no one seems to know, is not merely something to be read.

One is the desire to be safe, and how society can assist with safety, even for the most marginalized or least well-off... 2022
