Wide-spread plea bargaining results in criminal court practices that are very different from the system of jury trials envisioned in the Fifth and Sixth Amendments. Join us for a conversation with author and law professor Carissa Byrne Hessick, who will discuss her new book, Punishment Without Trial: Why Plea Bargaining is a Bad Deal (2021), which analyzes the practices and impact of plea bargaining and proposes wide-ranging reforms.
