Description

This critical race theory in criminal law and sentencing content is designed to stand alone and can be used to facilitate classroom discussions related to systemic racism and the law in your criminal law class. It is drawn in large part from the criminal law and sentencing chapter of Brown’s Critical Race Theory, 3d.

The chapter begins with a brief introduction to critical race theory which looks at how societal racism shaped criminal law and sentencing legal principles. The chapter has a selection of cases generally covered in most criminal law and sentencing subject matter casebooks as well as law review articles discussing the cases which provide additional information that allow for a fuller discussion of the role of racism in the case. After each set of readings there are questions and notes.
