This American Bar Association teleconference—sponsored by the Behavioral & Neuroscience Law Committee of the ABA Section of Science & Technology Law—updates participants concerning the latest legal, correctional, and social scientific perspectives on the phenomenon of solitary confinement.

• Does it truly constitute “cruel and unusual punishment” to serve one’s time under such conditions?

• How do experts in prison administration view and solve the practical issues involved?

• What is the perspective of the mental health researchers and clinicians who study, evaluate, and treat the inmates in question? 

Attend this teleconference to hear the answers to these and other questions from our esteemed panel of experts.
