“Juveniles Are Different: Miller’s Limits on Punishing Juvenile Offenders,” focused on the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent jurisprudence regarding the constitutionality of life without parole sentences for juvenile defendants.
Our featured panelists examined the legal and doctrinal challenges raised by the Court’s recent sentencing law decisions, the scientific and medical evidence relating to juvenile development cited in those opinions, and the state litigation that will result from Miller’s pronouncement.
