Jonathan Simon

Adrian A. Kragen Professor of Law
UC Berkeley

I'm a criminologist and legal scholar with broad interests in criminalization, mass incarceration, and the sociology of law. My current work concerns what I consider the "end game" of mass incarceration. Many Americans now agree that too many people are in prison and that prisons cost too much. But too few recognize the depth of the human rights crisis mass incarceration created, or the challenge to human dignity that remains in place.
