The tools of law and economics can help to identify problems with the system of criminal justice as it is administered in the United States and to suggest reforms. The Judicial Symposium on Using the Law and Economics to Reform the System of Criminal Justice: Theory, Empirical Evidence, and Some Applications, covered such questions as whether criminals can really be deterred and whether the way US law actually selects behavior for criminal punishment makes sense in terms of societal and legal objectives. The discussion will focus on the criminal as a rational actor; the economic theory of crime and punishment; the human and systemic costs of overcriminalization; the use and abuse of prosecutorial discretion; and data-analytic approaches of the criminal justice administration, such as optimizing pretrial detention decisions.
