Biografie (woord)

Shima Baradaran Baughman is Professor of Law in the S. J. Quinney College of Law, at the University of Utah.


'Civil libertarians will predictably love this homage to the Eighth (and Sixth) Amendments but what may be less obvious is why the book is valuable to those of us committed to promoting justice and preventing injustice. Professor Shima Baradaran Baughman shows how more informed and thoughtful pretrial release decisions can reduce crime and avoid wrongful convictions. I recommend the book to anyone who cares about both fairness and justice.' Paul H. Robinson, Colin S. Diver Professor of Law, University of Pennsylvania, author of Shadow Vigilantes: How Distrust in the Justice System Breeds a New Kind of Lawlessness (2018)
