Professor Douglas Berman was recently quoted in an article by Law360 titled, “Wide-Open Sentencing Commission Gives Biden Reform Path.”

“The question is how much political capital is the Biden administration and their allies on the Hill eager to invest, to infuse the commission with a very reform-minded set of attitudes and players,” Berman told Law360. “There’s so much seemingly small and yet extraordinarily impactful things the commission can do that end up impacting the operation of the federal criminal justice system particularly.”
