News Briefs JUSTICE KENNEDY TAUGHT SUMMER SALZBURG PROGRAM Law Review Symposium Revisits Need for Sentencing Reform 6 SUMMER / FAL L 20 1 5 T O P : T H I N K S T O C K ; B O T T O M : S T E V E Y E AT E R Ten years ago, Pacific McGeorge hosted a symposium, co-organized by Associate Dean Clark Kelso, on reforming California’s sentencing policies that resulted in a report outlining a proposal for reforming California’s sentencing scheme. Since then, Kelso, in his role as the California Correctional Health Care receiver for the state’s prison health care system, has been at the center of the controversy over sentencing reform. A decade later, California is on the verge of addressing the unsustainable reliance on prison as its solution to crime. To explore this timely issue, the McGeorge Law Review held its annual symposium on “The Long Overdue Reform of California’s Sentencing Practice and Policy.” Co-sponsored by the Pacific McGeorge Capital Center, the event featured a full day of discussion panels. A video of the symposium is on the Pacific McGeorge YouTube channel. Associate Dean Clark Kelso at the McGeorge Law Review Symposium. Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony M.
