How Penn Law’s Quattrone Center works toward a fairer criminal justice system

Penn Law’s Quattrone Center for the Fair Administration of Justice is a national research and policy hub created to increase the fairness and accuracy of the criminal justice system by preventing errors. Using an interdisciplinary approach, the Quattrone Center conducts data-driven policy level research on the most critical problems facing the criminal justice system, and uses its findings to offer recommendations on the best ways to address the systemic issues that lead to criminal justice error.

Led by Associate Dean and Executive Director John Hollway and Senior Fellow and Academic Director Paul Heaton, the center has released research findings on a wide range of subjects, from stop-and-frisk to wrongful convictions, and racial disparities in sentencing.
