“Managing Collateral Consequences in the Information Age”
“Managing Collateral Consequences in the Information Age” is the title of a symposium issue of the Federal Sentencing Reporter. It is composed of papers prepared for a Roundtable conference on criminal records issues jointly sponsored by the American Law Institute and the National Conference of State Legislatures in January 2018, and associated primary source materials. The issue’s Table of Contents shows the breadth and variety of topics covered. An introductory essay by Margaret Love summarizes the approach to managing collateral consequences in the revised sentencing articles of the Model Penal Code, and the seemingly contrary trends in criminal records management in state legislatures in recent years. She describes each of the papers in the issue, and policy recommendations tentatively reached by participants in the January Roundtable.
