What do we know about inequality in the justice system? What can researchers do about it? John Laub, Distinguished Professor in the Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of Maryland, and former Director of the National Institute of Justice, provides timely insights into these questions, and explores the intersections of inequality, crime, and the justice system in his new report—the second in our series on inequality.

Laub argues that social inequality both contributes to and is magnified by inequality in the justice system, and calls for new research on the justice system response to inequality and on new policies and programs that may reduce inequality in this domain.
